DAPCEP adding programs to prepare youth in STEM
Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program is adding STEM education programs for youth to explore skilled trades, health care jobs that don't require bachelor's degree. Will give youth options to move right into a job after high school graduation or on to certificate, associates or bachelors programs. New offerings to include emerging technologies and prepare students for jobs seeing shortages, high growth For much of its 42 years, Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program has worked to interest youth in science, technology, engineering and math and then steer them into careers like engineering. But there are many STEM-related jobs that don't require a four-year degree. And there are many employers looking for people to fill them. Amid widely reported talent shortages in areas like skilled trades, DAPCEP is adding STEM education programs that will give students a range of job and career educational program options. These could include certificates that prepare high school graduates to move right into jobs in areas like coding or drone operation, an associate degree program to prepare for careers in areas such as health care, or four-year degree tracks for engineering careers.
