WINSTON-SALEM -- At a time where UNCG and North Carolina A&T are facing funding cuts for failing to meet enrollment goals, Forsyth Tech is getting a little extra money from the state this summer for 150 new STEM related courses.
The dean of math, science and technology says Forsyth Tech has seen a large increase in demand for STEM related classes as more people look for ways to join the workforce as fast as possible.
"We have a very dedicated faculty and staff who work hard to help our students, but certainly the STEM field is a field where there are growing job opportunities, and I think students recognize that," Dean Michael Ayers said.
Forsyth Tech will offer the new courses during two different summer sessions. The first is from May 18 until the end of July. The second is June 23 until Aug. 8.
