Communications, Outreach & Career Awareness

Over the past several years, DVIRC has been working with Delaware County Community College, Montgomery County Community College, Drexel University, the School District of Philadelphia, and area high schools to develop Applied Engineering Technology (AET) educational programs to support the human capital needs of regional advanced technology and manufacturing companies.  The Center’s work has expanded over the past year and now includes:

  • 3 community colleges—Delaware and Montgomery County, and the Community College of Philadelphia
  • 8 four-years institutions—California, Drexel, Widener, Philadelphia, Villanova, Temple, Neumann, and Penn State Universities, and
  • 7 high schools throughout the region

DVIRC has been involved in outreach and career awareness activities region-wide by managing activities such as:

  • Marketing and Public Relations Campaigns
  • Collateral Material Development
  • Community and School Outreach
  • Career and Educational Awareness Programs for parents, teachers, and students

DVIRC will be actively engaged in these activities for both the GPIC and NDEP initiatives already underway.
