FAYETTEVILLE, NC – December 3, 2014 – Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC) announced today that it has been designated a 2015 STEM Jobs Approved College by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting individuals in transition with education and career opportunities and creator of STEM Jobs media, education, and career resources for students interested in science, technology, engineering, and math.
FTCC is one of three colleges in North Carolina on the inaugural 2015 STEM Jobs Approved Colleges’ list as the first of its kind to rate universities, colleges, community colleges and trade schools on its responsiveness and relevance to high-demand, high-growth STEM occupations.
FTCC is among over 1,600 schools who participated in the STEM Jobs survey process. Schools submitting surveys were scored on publicly available data and responses to proprietary questions around three key indicators of success: STEM job alignment, STEM job placement, and diversity in a school’s STEM programs. The assessment and rights to the STEM Jobs Approved Colleges designation were available to qualifying schools for free. FTCC will be featured in the Winter 2015 issue of STEM Jobs magazine, along with the entire 2015 list of STEM Jobs Approved Colleges.
“With the list of STEM Jobs Approved Colleges, we’re able to help parents, students and guidance counselors evaluate how well education is translating into real-world jobs and how responsive institutions are in meeting those demands,” said Daniel Nichols, President of STEM Jobs. “We’re pleased to showcase schools like Fayetteville Technical Community College as a school leading the way in this area.”
