Student Testimonial

The books we use — and that the program pays for — are on the shelf of every plant.  They’re still consulted as reference manuals by people working in the field, and we’ll use them as we start our careers, too.  Seeing those books at the plant where I did my internship made me realize that we’re being given real tools — relevant tools — that are being used today."
