History of the Program

Recognizing that Connecticut industry has a significant
need for a continuing graduate education program that is
convenient to its workforce:



1998 UConn School of Engineering and United
Technologies Corporation (UTC) partnered to bring
graduate courses on
-
site to UTC engineers.



The program was so successful that it has been
expanded significantly, both in terms of the course
offerings and participating companies.
