The Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Center is a national partnership of organizations working to improve marine technical education and in this way help to prepare America’s future workforce for ocean occupations. Headquartered at Monterey Peninsula College (MPC) in Monterey, California, the MATE Center has been funded as a National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Center of Excellence since 1997.

Accomplisments:
The MATE Center conducts regional and international underwater robotics (ROVs) competitions to increase students’ learning experiences and build academic and employer partnerships. We work to improve student preparation for the workplace through at-sea and shore-based technical internships. MATE supports institutions interested in developing or improving technology-related education programs. We assess workforce needs and developing knowledge and skill guidelines for new and emerging ocean occupation and develop curricula in marine technology, underwater robotics, marine geospatial technology, career awareness, and ocean observing systems. In addition, MATE offers professional development for high school, college, and university faculty that focus on a broad array of marine technologies, workplace skills, and pedagogical innovations. We disseminate MATE products, including curricula, textbooks, occupational guidelines, competencies, and process guides (internship manuals, survey materials, etc.) both in traditional formats and electronically though the Center’s web site; and provide up-to-date, comprehensive workforce information via OceanCareers.com.

Bucket List:
The mission of the MATE Center is to provide the marine technical workforce with appropriately educated workers and to use marine technology to create interest in and improve science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
