Workforce Development

Create a Talent Pipeline

Our region’s technology-driven economy makes it a challenge to find employees who are trained with both technical and soft skills required for this changing workplace. By partnering with UMass Lowell, you will have an opportunity to experience first hand the talents and applied knowledge that our students offer.

By engaging with the UMass Lowell research enterprise, your organization will have access to our talented graduate and undergraduate students in research programs that will develop skills that are a great match for the needs of your workplace. And by working with our faculty and students, you will achieve greater visibility for recruiting in highly sought after areas such as engineering and computer sciences.

Many of our partners create a talent pipeline through research partnerships. For example, Raytheon highlights workforce development as one of the important benefits of the Raytheon UMass Lowell Research Institute (RURI) collaboration.
