The aerospace/aviation industry is growing, creating more high-tech, high-paying jobs. With disruptive technology innovations and new entrants in the field including Google  and Facebook, new opportunities are emerging daily. 


Both the aerospace industry and the large infrastructure that supports it require STEM-savvy workers with a strong grounding in STEM disciplines.  Capacity in additive manufacturing, augmented reality, big data and analytics, cybersecurity and more is essential. Are we ready to supply this workforce?
