The Utah State Board of Regents approved an administrative restructuring that creates the School of Applied Sciences, Technology and Education within the College of Agriculture at Utah State University.

The new school replaces the current USU Agricultural Systems Technology and Education Department and encompasses two units at Utah State University-College of Eastern Utah. Those include the divisions of Professional and Technical Education Division and the Workforce Education Division. The new school's acronym, ASTE, remains the same.

Bruce Miller, ASTE department head and career and technical education director for USU, was additionally named assistant dean of the School of Applied Sciences, Technology and Education.

The combination of knowledge, skills and abilities within the new school allows USU to prepare students for higher paying, high-demand jobs in career and technical fields while also providing related undergraduate and graduate degree opportunities, including the training and licensure of teachers for career and technical programs, Miller said.

The Division of Professional and Technical Education at USU Eastern in Price and Blanding provides a comprehensive set of programs that offer Associate of Science degrees, Associate of Applied Science degrees and certificates.

Workforce Education at USU Eastern offers noncredit programs through local agencies, businesses and industries with short- and long-term certificate training. It provides the Price community with the resources needed to meet targeted workforce needs.
