Defining Careers

ATEEC’s popular Defining Careers resource materials provide easy-to-understand overviews of jobs in the fields of water, environment, and energy. Occupational reports, charts, and interactive tools help the user categorize and organize jobs in these fields and allow browsing of specific jobs and descriptions, including job functions, projected job growth, pay scales, and educational requirements.

Ted Modules

TED Modules

ATEEC and MIT teamed up to produce Technology and Environmental Decision-Making (TED)—a series of instructional modules developed by researchers and instructional designers.
