Learn more about this new program at LCCC at an information session from 5-6:30 p.m., Tuesday, October 29 at the Desich Business and Entrepreneurship Center.

{mosimage}"This is an opportunity for students to get in on a field that hasn’t existed before," said Kelly Zelesnik, LCCC’s dean of Engineering Technologies.  "There have been jobs on the East and West Coast, but with the development of the SMART Center on our campus we may be seeing more jobs in Northeast Ohio."

The first class in the program – Introduction to Micro-Electromechanical Systems – was offered this fall.  The introduction course and follow up courses will be offered is short-term sessions in spring semester.

The program will utilize state-of-the-art laboratory facilities containing equipment for testing, troubleshooting, calibrating, analyzing and designing electronic and MEMS systems. It is offered as an associate degree, and for those who may already have a degree but would like to enter this field a one-year technical certificate or short-term technical certificate are also offered. LCCC has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by LCCC’s University Partnership.
