What is the WET Center?
The Water, Energy and Technology (WET) Center is housed on Fresno State’s campus, right next to the Dairy Unit, and our mission is to support water, energy and ag-tech innovators and entrepreneurs on their path to commercialization through training, coaching and networking. Through our innovative programming (like BlueTechValley and Valley Ventures), and with the help of students, we are able to further support those ventures all the while reaching a more sustainable future.
The Benefits of Hands-On Learning:
Fresno State prides itself on enhancing the student experience by offering hands-on learning opportunities to students both on and off-campus -- The Water, Energy and Technology (WET) Center is no different in providing such opportunities! A recent survey showed two-thirds of employers look for graduates with relevant work experience when hiring. Hands-on learning experiences help to fill the gaps as students prepare for success upon graduation! The COVID-19 pandemic makes for a more difficult environment in working with others, connecting with industry contacts, and furthering students' careers and skills.
How Can I Help?
The WET Center is strongly committed and connected to the water, energy, and ag-technology startup community, and can not only facilitate exciting and relevant student work with startups and the WET Center Team but can also help in facilitating the sharpening of skills among the student population. With your generous donation, we hope to give 10 students the chance for 3 - 6 months of paid, real-working experience in solving real problems, for real companies - kick-starting their careers right here in the Central Valley. We hope you will consider a donation of any size in supporting our efforts to enhance the hands-on student learning experiences.
Thank you, and Go ‘Dogs!
