Our proximity to the Indianapolis area gives local companies access to a huge pool of talent. But that involves more than just numbers. Between Brownsburg’s local employment base and some of the global leaders who call Indianapolis home, you’ll find thousands of workers with the skills needed by companies in life sciences, advanced motorsports, R&D, medical devices, and other fields where applying knowledge is a critical skill. Many of those skills are transferable to other industries, too.
We intend to maintain Brownsburg’s leadership in these fields, so higher education providers work closely with local employers to deliver the specialized training that’s in demand. It’s also why our K-12 schools emphasize STEM disciplines. Universities with worldwide reputations in STEM — such as Purdue, the Indiana University Medical School, IUPUI, and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology– are within a short drive of Brownsburg. That gives you access to the best and brightest for employment and for research assistance. And the Hendricks College Network will work with higher education institutions on your behalf to locate and create the knowledge development you need.
