Training technology leaders gather at Tech Center
Tuesday, July 12, 2011
College and private sector technical trainers from across Washington and Oregon — and a few from farther afield — gathered Tuesday at Clark College’s Columbia Tech Center campus to check out the latest equipment available to train students and professionals in fields of renewable energy, wind engine turbine systems, smart grid technology, and electrical power transmission. The equipment displays and seminar presentations, which continue through today, are hosted by Clark College and Lab-Volt, a supplier of equipment to colleges and industry. Clark College uses the training equipment in its Mechatronics Technology program, a technical field that deals with the integration of mechanical and electronic components managed by a control system.
