UC Clermont to host Manufacturing Engineering Technology info session at Grant Career Center June 17
Submitted by UC Clermont College.
UC Clermont will host a one-on-one briefing at the Grant Career Center in Bethel, Ohio on Thursday, June 17, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm to highlight the manufacturing engineering program
On this evening, the participants have the opportunity to meet with the Faculty of Manufacturing Engineering and the university’s admissions representatives. UC Clermont waives the US $ 50 registration fee for anyone applying during the event.
The Manufacturing Engineering course prepares students for a variety of positions in the manufacturing industry. Students receive special training in manufacturing processes – lean manufacturing, project management, production management, computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) and robotics, computer-aided design (CAD) and problem solving.
“We have a combination of a great facility, a strong curriculum and good relationships with industry leaders in the region,” said Chris Goodman, MET program coordinator at UC Clermont. Top employers for UC Clermont graduates include Milacron and L3Harris. “Manufacturing is a broad field and offers enormous opportunities. Students graduate and get hired quickly. Even in times of the pandemic, there is still a great need for skilled workers. ”
Victoria Lalena, a MET graduate currently completing an online Masters in Engineering Management degree, helped her build long-term relationships with her professors due to the small size of the UC Clermont program.
“Because of these relationships, I feel comfortable contacting them with questions or asking for advice even now. Professors Chris Goodman and Dexter Hulse were so flexible about my needs as a student, and each professor went out of their way to help me succeed, ”said Lalena.
The associate degree course prepares graduates for immediate entry as machine fitters, CNC programmers as well as designers, detailers and inspectors for engineering offices. The program also leads to a bachelor’s degree in Applied Administration from UC Clermont – building on core manufacturing engineering experience to prepare students for leadership roles as foremen, supervisors, and roles in project management and quality assurance in the field.
The briefing will be held at the Grant Career Center, 718 W Plane St., Bethel, Ohio 45106. Please reserve your place at this link: https://admissions.catalyst.uc.edu/register/MET6-17 or call the UC Clermont admissions office at 513-732-5319 for more information.
