RESOURCES FOR BUSINESS, EDUCATION, AND GOVERNMENT
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.
ATEEC and MIT teamed up to produce Technology and Environmental Decision-Making (TED)—a series of instructional modules developed by researchers and instructional designers. The modules deliver science-based background information and the latest research on a variety of environmental concerns. ATEEC has since updated selected modules.
ATEEC identifies and maintains an online listing of water, environmental, and energy technology programs offered by the nation’s two-year colleges, high schools, and workforce training organizations. With the rapid changes in these technology fields, our databases are updated periodically, but are not comprehensive. Educators are encouraged to add new programs.
