Workforce, Education & Innovation


Our mission is to prepare the current and future workforce with industry 4.0 skills through alternative learning pathways focused on advanced manufacturing, electric vehicles, energy storage, information technology, business and professional skills.

Workforce, Education and Innovation is now part of the College of STEM.

Our workforce and education programs serve YSU students, K-12, companies and community members looking to upskill, reskill or enter into new career pathways. We engage our learners through the online YSU Skills Accelerator and through classroom, hybrid and experiential learning.
