To exemplify their hands-on approach to "practical education," local colleges have developed a complete curriculum to satisfy growing employment needs resulting from the increase in activity in the rapidly growing Marcellus Shale industry. 

All of the educational institutions in the county have one thing in common besides providing advanced degree education:  a willingness to develop and implement custom educational programs to fulfill the needs of both business and industry.
