ATE Centers for Advanced Manufacturing


This 18-page paper, provided by Maricopa County Community College District, includes information about the National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program and NSF ATE Centers for Advanced Manufacturing. "The ATE program funds large, comprehensive Centers of Excellence, as well as smaller-scale, more focused projects." These centers usually involve collaborations among educational institutions and partners from business, industry, and government. These collaborations work to improve education and build the workforce in a particular area of technology. Of about 40 Centers in 2016, seven were centers for advanced manufacturing. These centers were focussed on mechatronics education, aviation and automotive technology, automotive manufacturing, and developing manufacturing, welding, and engineering education. This paper includes a description for each center and describes key activities.
