With $12 Million of New National Science Foundation Funding, Engineering Departments Are Making Big
Jul 20, 2015
Associated image

With recent calls from the White House to outfit a new generation of students for STEM careers, it’s no surprise that the National Science Foundation has just earmarked $12 million for the "revolutionizing" of six engineering and computer science departments around the country. The grants are part of the RED (Revolutionizing Engineering Departments) program, a multiyear initiative that seeks “to create and support an innovative and inclusive engineering profession for the 21st Century.” For more on the grant award, as well as links to the RED program and several videos of NSF assistant director for engineering Pramod Khargonekar’s words on the future of the field, readers may click here.

For Many Students, an Associates Degree Is Just the Beginning
Jun 25, 2015
Associated image

A recently released report by the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center reveals that, among students who earned their associate degrees and other certificates during the 2008-2009 school year, more than two-fifths went on to earn a bachelor’s degree within the next six years. 

The number was far higher for younger students. In fact, of those students who were age 20 or younger when they earned their associate degree, over 60 percent went on to earn a bachelor’s degree over the next years. That number fell to just over 40 percent for students between the ages of 21 and 24, and fell again (to just over 30 percent) for students over the age of 24. 

In addition, the report covers a number of other interesting data points, such as what percentage of students who completed a certificate went on to complete an associate degree; how long it took the average student to complete a bachelor’s degree after earning an associate degree; and other interesting facts.

Join ATE Central for a FREE Sustainability Webinar: Building Partnerships
Apr 7, 2015
Associated image

Join Nancy Maron, Program Director of Sustainability and Scholarly Communications at ITHAKA S&R, and Rachael Bower, Director and PI of ATE Central, for the final webinar in our spring series focusing on building partnerships. Partnerships may take many forms, from an informal collaboration among peers, to a highly structured transaction between organizations. They can offer an efficient way to punch far above your weight… or end up not delivering quite as much as planned.  For ATE projects and centers, industry partners in particular, can play a key role.  Join ITHAKA S&R and ATE Central to learn about the many shapes partnerships can take, hear examples of successful partnerships from the ATE community, and learn what to look out for when seeking to establish partnerships of your own.   We have some best practices to share with you about building partnerships, and we want to hear from you, too - we’d love to share your stories during the webinar! The webinar will be on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 2:00pm Eastern, and will run for 90 minutes. Sign up here: http://www.matecnetworks.org/webreg/ate_central.php
