A major component of the CART vision is active partnerships with business and industry and higher education. Leaders from business and industry are involved with CART at all levels – providing leadership and fiscal support, consulting on instructional design, and collaborating as instructors and mentors. Through the laboratories and the Central Valley Business Incubator and the resources of the Entrepreneurial Training program (which are housed at CART) students and businesses realize mutual benefits by participating in research and development that enhances learning and directly contributes to community interests.
CART partnerships with post-secondary institutions provide articulation between secondary and higher education curricula. Through these partnerships, CART students can conduct projects that combine lab classes with courses at the community college or university level, on-line courses, and other certification programs and options.
