- LBCC Albany Campus
- One day a week for 5 weeks: Wednesdays, April 4 – May 9, 5-6:30 pm
- Located on campus at Linn Benton Community College in Albany
- Hands-on learning in each of the following areas; Computer Systems, Welding, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), Mechatronics, Computer Aided Design, and Drafting (CADD)
Mechatronics: If you like working with your hands while using your brain to make stuff work, or working with robotics, mechatronics is for you!
Welding: In the welding process, heat is used to fuse metal pieces together. If you like working with your hands and making things, welding is for you!
CADD/Engineering: CADD operators play a major role in product design. CADD techs work closely with engineers to develop everything from a three-piece pencil to a multistory building.
Non-Destructive Testing: NDT technicians inspect, test and evaluate materials, components or assemblies for flaws that may lead to failure, without destroying them.
Computer Systems/Science: Computer Science is the study of programming, data storage and retrieval, computing machinery and the interaction with people. Graphics, artificial intelligence, robotics and expert systems are some of the products of computer science. This is an exciting career area that affects many aspects of our lives.
