STEM careers are possible. Data shows, STEM fields are among the most sought after degrees for student veterans. 

Our goal is to guide veterans, like you, with their strong work ethic and solid work histories, into careers in the sustainable energy industry. 

We do this through a combination of formal or technical education, basic career prep, internships, and/or fellowships based on the needs of each veteran for their desired career. 

Transition is a uniquely stressful time for many veterans, with unique challenges and stressors that are uncommon to the general college population. The all-veteran VTEC team supports and mentors participants toward their individualized goals.

We take a holistic approach to the transitioning veteran to ensure they smoothly navigate various choke points veterans often encounter.
