  • This program is for high school students who have interest in expanding their knowledge and understanding of careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). More specifically, the program is designed for mentoring and encouraging students for STEM-rich programs at universities, two-year technical colleges, and technical certificate programs.

  • By participating in WIT, students gain exposure to higher education and career opportunities while building the confidence to consider further STEM education. While the founding emphasis is based in nuclear energy and technology applications, the program is broadly open to all aspects of STEM applications.

  • The WIT program engages students through local sponsors within participating schools in the State of Texas. 

  •  WIT is open to both male and female students in their junior or senior year who have demonstrated excellent academic accountability.

  • WIT provides educational tools and essential support to pursue educational and professional opportunities in areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

  • The Workforce Industry Training (WIT) program is funded and supported by the Nuclear Power Institute (NPI), a joint center of Texas A&M University (TAMU) and Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES).
