Friday, December 18, 2015
Students in the Machine Tool Technology and Welding programs at the Southern Adirondack Education Center in Hudson Falls recently visited three local businesses in Washington County for a first-hand look at job opportunities in the field. In addition, second-year students were also gathering information on which company they’d like to pursue an internship with in the future.
The Work-Based Learning program coordinates field trips and internships at local businesses and industry for Career and Technical Education students. Student internships supplement the classroom experience with a real-world, hands-on experience.
Students visited Fort Miller FAB3, Fronhofer Tool and BDP Industries.
