SME PRIME Schools Initiative

High Schools in the SME PRIME Network

Since 2011, SME PRIME® (Partnership Response In Manufacturing Education) has reached nearly 100,000 students in 60 communities across 22 states. 84% of graduating SME PRIME students intend to pursue careers in manufacturing, and 60% of those students intend to pursue post-secondary education in a field directly related to manufacturing.

Students in the SME PRIME network receive hands-on training on modern equipment, and learn about technology and processes through tailored curriculum that is informed by local manufacturing companies in their communities.
