Utah Career Pathway / Career & Technical Education (CTE)
In Utah, there are over 50 Pathways within seven areas of study, including aerospace and composites.
U of U Materials Science Program
For those with a love for chemistry and physics, but would like to have an engineering degree, Materials Science & Engineering is the perfect degree for you. This is the only discipline in the College of Engineering that gives students the opportunity to study science while getting an engineering degree.
Materials Scientists and Engineers are continually engaged in developing new materials or upgrading the use of basic materials that will fit in the highly technological world that we live in. Since virtually everything that we use in our daily lives is made of materials, the need for materials scientists and engineers outpaces the ability of schools to graduate students.
Within the Materials Science & Engineering program at the University of Utah our faculty focuses their research seven main areas.
They are …
- Electronic materials
- Computational materials
Davis Tech Composite Materials Program
Ogden Weber Tech - Composites Program
Mountainland Tech - Aerospace Program
Salt Lake Community College - Composites Program
Weber State University - Composites Program
BYU - Composites Program
Granite Technical Institute
The Department of Career and Technical Education in Granite School District has a well-earned reputation for providing high- quality programs that are targeted at high-demand industries. To further this focus, The Granite Technical Institute offers courses in Health Science & Technology, Engineering, Information Technology, Biotechnology/Biomanufacturing, Culinary Arts, Aviation, Agriculture, Cosmetology/Barbering, and Home Building/Construction.
U of U SCI Institute
Over the past decade, the SCI Institute has established itself as an internationally recognized leader in visualization, scientific computing, and image analysis applied to a broad range of application domains. The overarching research objective is to conduct application-driven research in the creation of new scientific computing techniques, tools, and systems. An important application focus of the Institute continues to be biomedicine, however, SCI Institute researchers also address challenging computational problems in a variety of application domains such as manufacturing, defense, and energy. SCI Institute research interests generally fall into the areas of: scientific visualization, scientific computing and numerics, image processing and analysis, and scientific software environments. SCI Institute researchers also apply many of the above computational techniques within their own particular scientific and engineering sub-specialties, such as fluid dynamics, biomechanics, electrophysiology, bioelectric fields, parallel computing, inverse problems, and neuroimaging.
A particular hallmark of SCI Institute research is the development of innovative and robust software packages, including the SCIRun scientific problem solving environment, Seg3D, ImageVis3D, VisTrails, ViSUS, and map3d. All these packages are broadly available to the scientific community under open source licensing and supported by web pages, documentation, and users groups.
The SCI Institute either directs or is associated with several national research centers: the NIH Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing (CIBC), the DoE Scalable Data Management, Analysis, and Visualization (SDAV), the NIH National Alliance for Medical Image Computing (NA-MIC), the DoE Scientific Data Management Center, the NIH Center for Computational Biology, and the DoE Center for the Simulation of Accidental Fires and Explosions (C-SAFE). In July, 2008, SCI was chosen as one of three NVIDIA Centers of Excellence in the U.S. (University of Illinois and Harvard University are the other two NVIDIA Centers).

Procurement Techical Assistance Programs
Government contracting can be complicated. To date, PTAC has successfully assisted hundreds of Utah small businesses who have been awarded close to one-half of a TRILLION dollars. If your small business is looking for a way to expand its customer base, government contracting may be an option. Utah PTAC is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and the state of Utah.
Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED)
The mandate for this office is to provide rich business resources for the creation, growth and recruitment of companies to Utah and to increase tourism and film production in the state.
The Governor’s Office of Economic Development accomplishes this mission through the administration of programs that are based around industries or “economic clusters” that demonstrate the best potential for development. The Governor’s Office of Economic Development utilizes state resources and private sector contracts to fulfill its mission.
