Industry Relations

The College of Engineering and Computing students have been busy this semester.  Not only has the coursework been rigorous but the seniors are hard at work on their senior design projects, the MUCAT Design Innovation Competition teams are finalizing their designs, and students are engaging with companies on campus.
CEC is excited to welcome alumni and friends to campus for the Senior Design Expo and the Alumni and Friends Conference later this month.  More information is below.
The Engagement Opportunities section in this newsletter offers new avenues to engage with students actively seeking employment, as well as the chance to interact with first and second year students during Fall Semester.
Ohio TechCred offsets the costs to upskill and educate your employees.  It can provide up to $2,000 per credential, and employers are eligible to receive up to $30,000 for each monthly funding round.  This is an extremely cost effective way to quickly upskill your employees, and can include custom courses to ensure your teams always receive the most relevant training.  Ohio TechCred funding should open in May and courses can begin on June 1.
The advanced manufacturing and materials evaluation courses and workshops offered by the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Department are eligible for Ohio TechCred. These courses can be taken independent of other classes, as part of a degree/certificate program, used as professional development, or customized to meet your company's needs.  
Check out the information on the courses here.  Please contact Colleen Bush to learn more about the courses and how to educate your employees at no additional cost to your company.
