STEM Industry Advisory Committee

The goal of the STEM Industry Advisory Committee is to support the success of students interested in pursuing STEM careers.  The committee is involved in events that expose students to STEM opportunities, and in providing internship opportunities for Cochise STEM students.

The committee also provides input into the needs of industry for various STEM programs and suggests ways in which to align the curriculum of these programs with current industry practices.
