California ranks low for bachelor’s degree completion in engineering and computer science — 37th and 38th in the nation, respectively. If we are going to meet the workforce demands of Orange County and our region, bold action must be taken to build pipelines into STEM majors, increase educational access and support student success. The newly created Engineering and Computer Science Ambassador Program builds our students’ personal communication and leadership skills with the goal of sharing their passion with local K-12 schools and prospective students. The Entrepreneur in Residence Program seeks to combine entrepreneurial thinking and technical aptitude to seed a mindset that advances our students’ innovative solutions and gives them an advantage when entering the workforce.
Your support will provide access to a talented pipeline of students entering and graduating in engineering and computer science with the skills needed to solve the dynamic issues facing our society.
