Carter Academy at MSOE to Provide Intense Preparation for STEM-related Careers
Date:2/19/2013

nt rate. The average starting salary was $55,368 last year—higher than the median household income for the United States ($52,762, according to the U.S. Census Bureau).

“It’s well-documented that there is a shortage of engineers in the United States,” said Dr. Carter. “Pat and I are excited to encourage and give young people the opportunity to attend MSOE and become engineers. It is our hope that the Carter Academy will make an impact on MSOE, the students served by the university and the local, state and national communities in which they reside.”

Courses will begin in summer of 2013 at the Carter Academy. Highly skilled students who did not learn the necessary math, physics and chemistry in high school will get a second chance to prepare for full acceptance to MSOE.

This contribution is one of many significant gifts to have been received by the university as a result of the John and Linda Mellowes Planned Giving Initiative, which is funded by the Charter Manufacturing Company Foundation Inc.
