IVCC tackles problem of skilled worker shortage

Posted by wlpo on January 16, 2015

There’s a new engineering option at Illinois Valley Community College.

The IVCC trustees have approved a new degree in engineering technology. Dean of Workforce Development Sue Isermann says the degree will prepare students for entry-level employment in technologically advanced production jobs in all sectors of manufacturing. Some of the jobs could entail fields like wind energy and welding.

The degree comes from advice of advisory groups and the use of two grants.
