The Granite Falls campus of Minnesota West has been working hard to start programs which have been very successful in the past. Many well paid job opportunities are left unfilled in these technical fields of Precision Machining and Mechatronics which used to be called Fluid Power. It's a great field that enables students to enter the work force quickly or with Mechatronics, earn an Associate Degree. Precision Machining is a 35 credit, one-year diploma program which will train students and provide them with the skill set they need to confidently pursue a career as a machinist in the manufacturing field. These programs and their learning outcomes have been developed in partnership with leading area employers and industries, along with support and funding from the Minnesota Learn, Work, Earn grant made available through A Minnesota Advanced Manufacturing Partnership Project.
Rebecca Weber, Canby and Granite Falls Campus Dean stated, “Both the Mechatronics and Precision Machining programs bring forward the input and expertise of the industry to the classroom and labs. Industry collaboration has been key in retooling the curriculum to better prepare students for the workforce.” For more information about the Mechatronics or Precision Machining program please visit www.mnwest.edu, call 800-658-2330 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
