Aerospace technology grant bolsters hands-on learning

eNL_2012_11_Machining_Tech350pxStudents in Machining Technology will have more opportunities for hands-on learning about aerospace technology thanks to a grant from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges. The grant allowed the department to purchase five machine tools, a coordinate-measuring machine and two machine simulators for its shop. “Since our program is running at double capacity, the arrival of the equipment has helped tremendously in keeping students on machines doing the hands-on training we specialize in,” says Machining Technology Department Chair Bruce Wells. “Because of this type of specialized funding and our well-run foundation, Clark has become the premier shop in the state. This allows our students to be better prepared to take the next step successfully.”
