Business Involvement  

To better prepare the future workforce to fill jobs in Placer and Nevada Counties, Sierra College partners with businesses, economic development organizations and local high schools. These industry connections help promote relevant science, technology, engineering and math education that will help teachers prepare students to fill positions with technology and manufacturing companies.

Businesses and economic development organizations are supporting Sierra College’s effort to bring hands-on technical education into the classroom by donating equipment and scrap materials, participating on advisory committees, offering tours, job shadows and internships for students and teachers, and speaking in classrooms.

Sierra College also offers customized, on-site professional  employee training to businesses in the Sacramento, Roseville, Grass Valley and surrounding area in Lean Manufacturing, Process Improvement, Soldering, Basic Math Skills, Supervision, Communication and other business topics.
