Understanding local needs
MCCCD Industry Sector Institutes
As we strive to support both our students and local businesses, Maricopa Community Colleges is developing Industry Sector Institutes. An institute will support an industry’s workforce development needs, including credit, non-credit, short-term training, customized employer training, and more. The institutes will span the District, sharing resources, equipment, staff, faculty, and curriculum across colleges.
While we are exploring still future institutes, the first six institutes that have been identified are:
› Information Technology and Cybersecurity
› Integrated Healthcare and Biosciences
› Advanced Business Services
› Energy and Environmental Sciences
