Siemens Corporation, a global powerhouse in electronics and electrical engineering, has partnered with the Georgia Foundation for Public Education in an effort to promote and train students using advanced STEM initiatives.
“The Siemens partnership benefits our state by providing our students access to the type of training that generates good, high-paying jobs, and also offers a template for future partnerships between the business community and the Georgia Department of Education as the Career Pathways program develops,” said Denis Brosnan, managing director of GFPE.
A pilot program is beginning in South Forsyth High School where it will be delivered by a teacher that was trained at Siemens. Eventually, the program will also include internships, work-based learning projects and opportunities for overseas cultural experiences for students in Germany, according to a recent press release by Siemens.
“We are excited to assist the Georgia educational community with the launch of this educational program,” says Helmuth Ludwig, CEO of Siemens Industry Sector North America.
