Community and Technical College Programs

Many ERCs extend their outreach efforts to community colleges and technical colleges in their geographic area and beyond. These two-year institutions are an important source of students going into engineering at four-year institutions, and are often particularly important for improving the diversity of engineering students nationwide. RET programs may include community and technical college faculty as well as precollege teachers. 

An example of the kind of community and technical college involvements that ERCs undertake is provided here.
