TETC History and Background In 2001, a bi-factional gathering of Texas administrators passed the Technology Workforce Development Act , setting up TETC and the Technology Workforce Development (TWD) stipends program in light of solicitations by industry to build designing and software engineering graduates in Texas.

Slide 6

TETC Purpose/Measurement Purpose Increase both the amount and nature of baccalaureate-level architects and PC researchers Foster agreeable connections and exercises including innovation organizations and colleges that offer designing and software engineering degrees Measurement Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board tracks picks up in enlistment and graduates Includes following of underrepresented minorities and ladies

Slide 7

TETC Mission Meet the market requests for software engineering and building moves on from taking an interest schools in Texas. Enhance the assorted qualities of graduating architects from partaking schools. Increment joint effort amongst industry and advanced education in Texas.

Tangible Results: Helping Students From 2001-2006, TETC Technology Workforce Development (TWD) Grants profited: 18,200 secondary school understudies/instructors 16,600 entering understudies 19,000 advancing understudies 9,000 propelled understudies 3,100 graduated understudies TETC-TWD schools have expanded the quantity of electrical building graduates by 33 percent since 2001. TETC-TWD schools have expanded the quantity of software engineering graduates by 15 percent since 2001. TETC-TWD schools have expanded the general number of EE and CS graduates at a quicker rate than schools across the nation since 2001.

Helping Students: Real Stories "Amid my first semester at Texas A&M, I was uncertain of what degree I needed to seek after. I had quite recently put \'PC Engineering\' down on my application to begin school with a degree arrange rather than essentially broad studies. That semester I took Introduction to Engineering 1, which was a class that had as of late been altered through a TETC concede. Understudies were in sets and given a robot pack. Amid the start of the semester we assembled the robot and improved comprehend ideas from the addresses. Inevitably we had a venture in which we needed to plan the gadgets for the robot to empower it to explore through a labyrinth. "Growing up I have dependably been advised to discover work with something you appreciate. I delighted in working with that robot, and the hardware that ran with it. If not for those hands-on labs managing the robot I could have effectively been hindered by taking in the hypothesis of gadgets without applying it. As a result of that first year extend, I now anticipate graduating and have chosen to stay with the extreme course stack." Denise Garrett Junior Texas A&M University Computer Engineering

Helping Students: Real Stories "As a rookie, I was battling in school attempting to juggle between my homework and an outside employment in the meantime. Fortunately, I caught wind of the TETC program that our Electrical Engineering division had that would permit an understudy to chip away at grounds in the designing building low maintenance under the condition that I would just be permitted to work 10 hours a week and couldn\'t acquire an outside employment. "Toward the start of sophomore year, I accepted a position as a right hand to an educator of the Electrical Engineering division. This permitted me to concentrate more on my studies and gave me the adaptability to make my working calendar fit around my school plan. Likewise it gave me the chance to become more acquainted with a portion of the workforce of the division, and that helped me get a feeling of having a place. "In light of the program, I could enhance my evaluations … I got an occupation offer from Raytheon in the Dallas region and will start work in August [2005]. … I really trust that a decent measure of my prosperity was on the grounds that I had sufficient energy and the funds to remain centered and exceed expectations my studies due to the TETC program." Andres Lugo Recent Graduate UT Pan American Electrical Engineering

University Reponses to Why They are Involved Why Involved? Cash for schools/programs Seeing an Impact Benefits projects and understudies " Obviously, designing is the wellspring of development and generation that drives the cutting edge economy. Each item we appreciate is the consequence of the imaginative work of specialists. What is less known is that building is the most widely recognized first degree among Fortune 500 CEOs.  Engineering graduates additionally go ahead to medicinal and graduate schools, and return for MBAs. "The truth of the matter is that we have to teach numerous a greater number of designers than work in conventional building occupations, since so large portions of them utilize their building preparing as an establishment for different callings. Designers are issue solvers, and individuals who are not anxious of issues are required all through our general public. Dignitary Streetman, College of Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin TETC Executive Committee Member

Industry Members Responses to Why They are Involved Why Involved? Best practice models to expand building/software engineering graduates Good open approach Public/Private association Leverages assets "To keep up our state\'s innovation authority and monetary development, we should guarantee a solid stream of exceedingly qualified researchers and specialists from our colleges and schools in Texas. TETC is gaining huge ground recognizing and tending to basic issues that will at last prompt more understudies moving on from our colleges with science and designing degrees." Ray Almgren, National Instruments Chairman-TETC

Slide 17

Benefits of Joining TETC is an organization between industry, higher education
and government that: Directs awards to qualified colleges and universities to reserve programs that will expand the quantity of building and software engineering graduates in Texas; Leverages human asset consumptions and corporate commitments; and Increases cooperation between related scholarly projects and the private division.
