Encouraging Future Engineers
Engineers and architects from the Green Bay area were invited to Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) for their Engineering Open House, held annually during National Engineering Week. The event encourages talented students from middle school through adults to pursue an education in one of NWTC’s 17 engineering related fields.
Berners-Schober’s own NWTC graduates have participated in the event for several years. Staff members share what a career in architecture and engineering involves, and talk with prospective students about what skills they should look to develop while pursuing their degree or certification.
Two of our team members, Amir Nouri and Michelle Laun, attended the 2017 event. They displayed examples of Berners-Schober’s past projects, and were available to discuss their work in the field of architecture. Starting with questions about problem solving and school work, Amir and Michelle engaged students in discussions to help determine if they had interest in a design field. They were available to answer questions from students and their parents related to various educational paths.
NWTC offers a diverse array of programs, ranging from automation and prototyping, to architecture, civil and environmental engineering. The college provides two-year programs, many of which enable students to transfer to a four-year college if they desire to continue their education.
