National Science Foundation

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense…," and is a major source of federal backing for mathematics, computer science, and social science research and programming in American colleges.

In a continued effort to encourage students to go into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related fields, the NSF awarded the Community College of Baltimore County $1,345,578 million in funding for the Generating Excitement and Training for Engineering Technology (GET ET) and the Math and Computer Inspired Scholars (MCIS) programs.

With these programs, CCBC will be able to replicate its successful model that aligns the engineering technology curriculum between high schools and local community colleges to broaden participation and meet the growing need for engineering technicians in the state of Maryland and throughout the country.
