Students learn about HVAC, welding and more
What can you do with a degree in CADD? Or a degree in Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration? How about Welding or Trucking? Early Childhood Development or Business? What about Administration of Justice or Administrative Support Technology?
Students learned the answers and asked questions at Career Day, offered by the Portsmouth Campus, which is home to all of the above degree programs. “Stop by and let’s talk about your future,” read the sign at the Career Day entrance, and many students took advantage of the opportunity.
“HVAC is a great field for women,” said John Price, professor of technology. “It’s wide open. Businesses are always looking to hire females. People think there’s lots of heavy lifting. There’s not.”
What else did students learn?
• Early Childhood Development is a great place for male students given the need for male role models. Graduates of the program can find jobs in child care centers, schools and Head Start programs.
• The Administration of Justice degree prepares students for careers in law enforcement, criminology, corrections and industrial security.
• Computer-Aided Drafting and Design graduates create virtually every item you can imagine (check out the 3-D printer in the building).
Additional career days will be held during the spring semester.
