WNY STEM convened this data report project CLICK HERE that found a gap in the regional supply of new graduates based on estimated demand in engineering technologies jobs.  The local completion rate is supplying just 63.1% of the annual job demand.  The gaps exist for these Occupational Groupings:  Mechanical Engineering Technologies, Mechatronics (integrated technologies) and Tooling/Machining.  There is no gap estimated for Electrical Engineering Technologies.

This is an early version Beta 1 of the report that will continue to be revised.  It was developed under an agreement funded by SUNY TEAM in partnership with Monroe Community College’s Economic Development and Innovative Services Division. Fifteen local expert advisors assisted in review of the report.
