In August, Medina County Career Center (MCCC) launched its new Stem Innovation Academy. The academy includes the Engineering Technologies and Design and Precision Machining Technology career-technical majors.
“The purpose of this academy is to help our engineering and precision machining majors collaborate providing our students with real-world experience,” said Lorah Meech, engineering technologies and design instructor, MCCC. “Understanding both industries are going to help our students excel professionally and academically.”
To support this collaboration, the Engineering Technologies and Design major relocated next to Precision Machining Technology. Engineering updates include:
- Three dual-head multi-material Ultimaker 3D printers;
- A Formlab stereolithography 3D printer;
- Large format color plotter;
- Collaborative spaces with state-of-the art technologies to support advanced instruction and hands-on learning;
- Prototype Lab with quad engineering work stations used to evaluate new designs and to enhance precision.
