Workforce Development at Economic Development

Workforce Development is an essential, ongoing process of awareness, engagement, education, training, upskilling, and retention. The Office of Economic Development at Stony Brook University manages two New York State-designated Centers of Excellence (the AERTC and CEWIT), a Center for Advanced Technology (CIEES), the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MTRC), and the Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR). Through these centers, workforce development partnerships are forged with industry, government, schools, and public utilities, to both achieve New York State remits and prepare necessary workers with the tools and competencies in advanced technology careers.
