National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education (ATE)
* This program promotes improvement in technological education at the undergraduate and secondary school levels by supporting curriculum development; the preparation and professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; internships and field experiences for faculty, teachers, and students; and other activities. With an emphasis on two-year colleges, the program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation's economy. The program also promotes articulation between programs at two-year colleges and four-year colleges and universities - in particular, articulation between two-year and four-year programs for prospective teachers and between two-year and four-year programs in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (with a focus on disciplines that have a strong technological foundation).
