GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A Northeast Wisconsin college is receiving funding for a nationwide energy program.
Northeast Wisconsin Technical College says it has been awarded a National Science Foundation grant to create a Utilities and Energy Coordination Network.
“NWTC has a long-standing history of offering a variety of innovative energy programs,” said Amy Kox, NWTC dean of trades & engineering technologies, in a news release. “Our programs and model of operation allow us to be a resource for other colleges and employers. This grant will provide a platform for us to share and learn from a growing network across the nation.”
According to the release, the network is designed to create a formal platform for colleges and industry partners to share resources and form relationships that lead to expanded training opportunities nationwide. The project seeks to close the workforce shortage gap.
Class registration for energy and utility programs will be available April 6. More information can be found here.
