SGTC Welding Instructors Meet with Advisory Committee
The South Georgia Technical College Welding and Joining advisory committee met recently in the welding classroom of the McClendon building on the SGTC Americus campus. The group met to discuss the state of the program and get feedback from the advisory committee members who are professionals in the field.
The purpose of the advisory committee is to assist South Georgia Tech faculty and staff in continuous quality improvement of the Welding and Joining program. SGTC welding instructors Ted Eschmann and Wayne Parker 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 welding, new technology, employment/internship opportunities available for students, and salary levels students may anticipate upon graduation.
Members present at the advisory committee meeting included Steve Barrett of Metro Power and Don Smith of Jones Welding. Student representative Gray Rowe and SGTC Academic Dean Raymond Holt were also present at the advisory committee 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.
