UPCOMING SESSIONS ON MARCH 27, APRIL 7, APRIL 16

Individuals employed in Connecticut’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) industries, higher education STEM faculty and students interested in those fields are being brought together in a series of sessions designed to build connections between today’s workers – many of whom will be retiring during the next decade – and students striving to fill those impending vacancies.

The new initiative, being led jointly by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology and the Connecticut Technology Council, provides opportunities for employers, faculty and students to network, discuss industry trends and needs, and develop an effective and efficient pipeline of top talent from college to career. 

The “STEM Talent Connection” is funded by CT Next, and is being held at four regional locations around the state. 

FRIDAY, MARCH 27

To be held in collaboration with University of Bridgeport, at the University’s Heckman Center, 12:00 – 2:00 PM.

TUESDAY, APRIL 7

To be held in collaboration with Quinnipiac University, at the Atrium of Quinnipiac’s Engineering Building, 3:00-5:00 PM.

THURSDAY, APRIL 16

To be held in collaboration with the University of Hartford, on the University campus in West Hartford (exact location TBD).   

Local community college students will be invited to attend the networking sessions.  The first of the four regional sessions was hosted by Sacred Heart University on February 19, 2020.
