With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s only appropriate that flowers and sweets are on the brain. Sure you can run to the drugstore around the corner and pick up everything you need for the holiday, but where do these things actually come from? Unlike other schools, SUNY campuses have departments and programs dedicated to botany and culinary arts which have prepared students to excel in these fields, as well as being prepared for Valentine’s Day. Below are a few examples that may help kindle those warm feelings.
Anchoring a career in today’s automotive industry means students have to know about a lot more than just what’s under the hood.
To keep up with the accelerating pace of vehicles today, students have to be tech-savvy and familiar with the latest electronics and sophisticated devices coming on to the auto scene and colleges have to offer this experiential learning—both of which happen at Morrisville State College.
“We are noted for our auto programs,” Joe Kidd, assistant professor in the automotive department, said. “We are very hands-on and our students’ skill-set is exceptional when they graduate.”
MSC took another step toward preparing its automotive students to keep up with the driving demands of the auto industry, with its recent certification by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) of its automotive technology bachelor degree program. The college’s automotive technology—Ford ASSET (Automotive Students Service Education Training) program also received recertification.
