FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) - Wright State University announced the opening of a new center to enhance the state's aerospace and defense workforce, helping a vital sector of Ohio's economy.
Ohio aerospace and defense employers have found gaps in the advanced skills they need to grow their businesses and do research.
The Aerospace Professional Development Center, which will be located at 4035 Colonel Glenn Highway, will work closely with the aerospace and defense industry institutions around Ohio.
Wright State's Aerospace Center will offer career coaching, match employees with job openings, identify skills gaps in the workforce and assist students in finding internships.
Aerospace and defense needs are in fields such as parts manufacturing and supply, research in composites, propulsion and fuel, the development and manufacturing of unmanned aircraft, evaluation and testing, machining and materials and coatings.
A core element of APDC will be an online portal where workers can create their own profiles and post resumes, and where employers can post job openings and workforce needs. It was launched on Friday, and will be fully functional by January. Visit www.OhioAerospaceCareers.org to learn more.
