SGTC Electrical Systems Technology Advisory Committee Meets
The South Georgia Technical College Electrical Systems Technology advisory committee met recently in the John M. Pope Industrial Technology Center on the college’s Americus campus to discuss several aspects of the industry.
The purpose of the advisory committee is to assist South Georgia Tech faculty and staff in continuous quality improvement of the Electrical Systems Technology program. SGTC Electrical Systems Technology Instructors Tyler Wells of the Americus campus and Mike Enfinger of the Cordele campus provided the committee with updates and information about program changes, enrollment, community activities, and student news.
The advisory committee members provide information to SGTC faculty and staff about suggested improvements in curriculum, new training opportunities that are available in the motorsports field, new technology, employment/internship opportunities available for students, and salary levels students may anticipate upon graduation.
Members present at the advisory committee meeting included Dan Torbert of Torbert Electric Co., Ronnie Miller of the Crisp County Power Commission, and Darrell Crenshaw of Electric Wholesale Supply. SGTC Academic Dean Dr. David Finley was also present for the meeting.
The advisory committee is a crucial link that provides an avenue for South Georgia Tech instructors to learn about changing conditions or technology in the workplace that can then be passed along to students that will enable them to be fully prepared upon graduation.
