Why us

Built on a legacy of outcome-driven skills innovation

SkillsEngine was born from a state of Texas mandate that publicly-funded colleges and universities demonstrate curriculum-to-employer alignment.

To address the mandate, Texas State Technical College (TSTC), Texas’ only technical college whose operational funding is tied to student career earnings, established the Center for Employment Outcomes (C4EO), whose research gave birth to SkillsEngine.
