The college and the manufacturer work closely together to enhance student learning. In addition to gaining skill mastery, students learn about the culture of manufacturing through manufacturing workshops such as safety culture, lean manufacturing, problem solving, etc. Opportunities to increase communication and presentation skills as well as develop work ethic are also available.
