The North Carolina Center for Engineering Technologies provides facilities for applied research in engineering related fields and serves as a conduit to baccalaureate education delivered by the University of North Carolina system schools.
Conceived as a community supported higher education effort in technical and engineering disciplines, this Center was established through a collaboration of business, government and higher education organized as the Future Forward Economic Alliance. The Center may collaborate with other schools in bringing the best programs to the region to meet the employment needs.
Future Engineers Camps are planned for 2015. Teachers have been selected. Teacher assistant applications are being accepted!
Students or recent graduates from teacher education program are eligible to serve as teacher assistants in the summer of 2015. Please consider working with the Future Engineers Camps by completing the survey.
