Students look to you not just for education, but also guidance. Leverage your knowledge and credibility to speed them along one of the 21st century’s best career paths. Here’s how:

  • Encourage students to pursue careers in the commercial electronics systems industry. We’ll be your partner in the endeavor by providing you with resources and advice.
  • Collaborate with local NSCA members to expose students to the industry. Help develop and spread the word about internships, mentorships, and other hands-on career learning experiences.
  • Help interested students plan their academic programs. This is a great way to help them learn about and focus their career interests.
  • Inform students about scholarship opportunities. Learn more through the NSCA Education Foundation.
