Open Teaching Materials
Open courseware & educational resources for instructors & students in engineering programs.
This website is a segment of a Department of Labor grant awarded to the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) of Clinton, Muscatine, and Scott. Iowa’s need for skilled engineering technology technicians is the driving force behind this project. Demand for engineering technology graduates remains high. The government projects that by the year 2018, Iowa’s advanced manufacturing segment alone will experience a shortage of 6,672 skilled workers due to older worker retirement and increasing need for Iowa products. This project seeks to meet this demand and provide a unique approach to learning about engineering technology.
