More graduates mean Oregon companies can get the high-end skills they need to grow their businesses in an increasingly competitive world.
Collaboration among the Oregon University System (OUS) and affiliate campuses with engaged industry leadership has built strong education-career pathways and supports. Business leaders around the state understand that Oregon must think globally, act strategically, and invest in innovation to drive productivity and prosperity. Investments in engineering and technology education and research capability at the eight campuses are key to this process.
Growing capacity and excellence at our universities is only part of the challenge. ETIC investments have and will continue to provide industries with the graduates and research to create innovative products and services, and increase organizational efficiency and competitiveness in our world economy.
