MCCEI Study: DIGGING dEEPER

What is Digging Deeper??

As a follow up to The Critical Path, MCCEI began a series of workshops called Industry Advisory Panels (IAPs) in mid-2013. The purpose of the IAPs was to begin working on the issue of aligning education programs with future industry needs.

With the IAPs, MCCEI set out to dig deeper into these topics and find out specifically where industry needs to better align with education programs and curriculum. The IAPs were designed to be open forums to get industry and education talking to each other in an environment where we could all work towards a common goal of building a world-class education system for Maryland's built environment industry.

In the findings of The Critical Path, industry collectively said, "We need improvements in high school math and science." Digging Deeper answers the question, "What kinds of math and science?" The Critical Path said, "We need college graduates with field experience." Digging Deeper answers the question, "How much?"

MCCEI will use Digging Deeper as a common platform to continue to work with our partners in education and industry to drive improvements to Maryland's already excellent education system.
