Keene State College Introduces Construction Safety Sciences Program
NEC member Keene State College has developed and improved several programs for the Fall 2018 semester, including the creation of a Construction Safety Sciences Program that is the first of its kind in the nation.
Keene State’s Construction Safety Program will prepare students for careers in risk management, loss control, and consulting through an emphasis on critical thinking, hazard identification, and safety and environmental regulatory compliance. In addition, Keene State has added more specialized training in their Computer Science Program for careers in cyber-security, software development, and computational mathematics. And finally, the college has developed a minor in sustainability, as well as the option to specialize in population health within the Public Health Program.
“In tandem with the new academic offerings, we are developing more experiences for our students so that they can begin to build their resumes and grow their skills while still in college,” said Keene State Interim President Melinda Treadwell. “When combined with the liberal arts focus on learning problem solving, strong communication skills, critical thinking, and team-oriented work, we are preparing our students for success. It is an exciting time to be a part of the Keene State community.”
The New England Council congratulates Keene State College on its innovative developments and their efforts to prepare a future generation of productive workers. Read more from Keene State College.
