Work-Ready Electronics (WRE)



ork-Ready Electronics (WRE) is a unique project that prepares students and technicians for the demands and dynamic nature of the electronics industry.  The project works directly with industry to close the gap between knowledge and skills needed by employers and those that are acquired by electronics technicians in training and education programs.  In this workshop you will learn about the needs of major employers in cutting-edge topic areas.  In addition you will directly experience the online use of WRE instructional modules and learn how they can be immediately incorporated into your training and education classrooms and laboratory environments.
