The National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Program — Graduate Employment Outcomes Study examined the employment outcomes of program graduates in the fields of biomanufacturing/biotechnology and process technology for the years 2006, 2007 and 2008. Conducted by FHI 360 and the Center for Educational Strategies, the two-year study was designed to improve the accountability, management and, ultimately, performance of ATE programs. The study’s goals included assessing the quality, productivity and effectiveness of the programs; developing multistate and single-state partnerships to determine feasibility of obtaining quality follow-up data on ATE program graduates; and providing NSF ATE centers and projects with information needed to obtain quality follow-up data on graduates that will inform decisionmaking, planning and program improvement.
