Students from nine local high schools had an opportunity to learn more about IVC’s School of Integrated Design, Engineering and Automation (IDEA) when they took a field trip to the campus on February 10. The nearly 300 high school students spent time touring the school and rotating into classrooms to learn more about the programs offered at the campus. IDEA faculty provided a brief overview of programs they teach including design model making and prototyping, drafting technology and engineering, electrical/electronic technology, and biotechnology.
Following lunch, IVC Vice President for Instruction Rick Miranda spoke to students along with representatives from IVC Outreach, Student Recruitment, Entrepreneurship, and Career Education. Concluding the day was a student panel featuring two students from IVC’s student government, Associated Students of IVC, and an Electronic Technology student from IDEA. See Photos »
