Mission, Texas (ots/PRNewswire) – At the heart of every successful business is a motivated and capable workforce. And at the heart of any successful region is a strong supply of skilled workers. This provides businesses with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the global marketplace. The Rio South Texas region understands this and proves it through the various public and private industry-certified skills training programs, college-level dual-credit programs in high school, and forward-thinking higher education institutions operating in Rio South Texas.
A great example of this is South Texas College’s (STC) collaboration with FESTO and Fuji Automatic Numerical Control (FANUC). This collaboration will provide certified training programs on some of the world’s most advanced Industry 4.0 manufacturing solutions for new and experienced manufacturing professionals. FANUC is a leading provider of robots, computer control systems and factory automation, while FESTO’s solutions are among the world’s best in Industrie 4.0 factories and digital twin environments.
And it’s not just cutting-edge manufacturing talent that’s home to Rio South Texas. Knowledge of the advanced materials used in today’s and tomorrow’s manufacturing processes is also being learned by Rio South Texas students, for example, at The University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) in its advanced nanoscience lab. The lab’s research focuses primarily on experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics, studying a wide range of solid-state phenomena at the nanostructure level. Program partners include the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and NASA.
These are just a few examples of the workforce development programs in the Rio South Texas region designed to provide local companies and potential investors with talent in industries such as batteries, biotechnology, mobility, energy, and aerospace! With a strong supply of skilled workers, as well as partners in North America and around the world, students at Rio South Texas educational institutions today are quickly becoming the faces of tomorrow’s globally successful companies.
