NSC Environmental Technology Program Guide

Welcome to the 30-credit Environmental Technology Certificate program developed by the National STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Consortium (NSC). The NSC is a collaborative of ten colleges in nine states funded by a U.S. Department of Labor grant to develop new workforce training programs in five technical pathways: Composites Technology, Cyber Technology, Electric Vehicle Technology, Environmental Technology, and Mechatronics Technology. This file contains all of the materials created for the NSC Environmental Technology Program Guide (program overview, information about the industry, the curriculum, program infrastructure, the role of the business community, student success strategies, and related documents). To review and download course materials, including teaching toolkits, syllabi, lesson plans, and miscellaneous instructional materials, look for the twelve courses with the name beginning ���Course: NSC Environmental Technology Certificate Program��� in the National STEM Consortium Learning Resources Collection in SkillsCommons. The full NSC Environmental Technology program, including interactive online modules, also is available on the Open Learning Initiative website, www.oli.cmu.edu (see link below).
