A strong skilled workforce is a tent pole in the manufacturing sector and key to the next generation of innovation and economic growth. Manufacturers are investors in their communities for the long haul and their impact can be seen everywhere you look.
NAM member TE Connectivity has a long history with educational partners and has recently doubled down on their investments in America’s future workforce with a $500,000 gift to Penn State Harrisburg. The gift will create the, “TE Connectivity Capstone Design Endowment to fund Penn State Harrisburg senior engineering capstone projects as well as create the TE Connectivity Lecture Series in Connector Design, which will provide opportunities for students to network with industry experts.”
TE Connectivity employees over 7,400 engineers as part of its global workforce of 90,000 and it knows firsthand the value of providing real world experience to students. It’s about creating a pathway to success and TE embodies the efforts the NAM and Manufacturing Institute have place in STEM education.
