Preparing Manufacturing and Engineering Talent
Supported and informed by private industry, SME PRIME® (Partnership Response In Manufacturing Education) builds cost-effective and tailored manufacturing/engineering programs in high schools across the country.
PRIME students receive hands-on training on modern equipment, and learn about technology and processes through tailored curriculum that is informed by local manufacturers in their communities.
PRIME teachers receive professional development and certifications that equip them to certify students.
PRIME investors receive a pool of skilled talent who have been trained – and often certified – to fill specific roles at their respective manufacturing companies, providing the investors with a direct return on their investment.
Manufacturing companies of all sizes can invest in a PRIME program.
