Feature 1 - Students experience Heavy Equipment Engineers

Students in the Construction Engineering and Management Technology program visited the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 150, Training Center. The events included a presentation on the Operating Engineers and their role in the construction industry, how unions approach training, and hands-on experience with the responsibilities of heavy equipment operators and construction material inspectors.

Feature 2 - Students experience Heavy Equipment Engineers

Simulators allow for apprentices to get used to the equipment without the risk of damaging it. The students found the simulators more difficult to run than the actual equipment.

Feature 4 - Students performing Anthropometry lab exercise

Feature 3 - Students take readings from GIS system

Students are collecting field data using geographic information systems (GIS) to build geographic and built layers for a Building Information Model. Working outside of the classroom and in the field provides an opportunity to extend learning and develop career essential skills.

Feature 5 - EHS Students performing fire surpession techniques

Fire suppression techniques and safety are introduced to EHS students. While there are an almost limitless number of ways to fight a wildland fire, students need to maximize the safety of personnel and make the best use of resources.
