Creating a skilled workforce for the nascent CCS industry involves not only training those currently in the workforce, but those who are in the workforce pipeline. Students from pre-university through graduate school need to be introduced to CO2 sequestration science and engineering technology. For pre-university students, our focus is on teacher professional development, particularly for high school teachers, but younger grades as well. At the university level, we plan and implement coursework locally at The University of Texas at Austin, and we also offer workshops at institutions of higher education at various locations for students and faculty. Contact us if you are interested in this workforce pipeline initiative.
