MANUFACTURING

CNC Production Specialist
This week and next, the students are making a part on the CNC lathe from start to finish, all on their own.  First they’re modeling the part in SolidWorks, then they are programing the part in CamWorks, then taking the program to the machine, setting up the tools, dry running the program and then machining their part.  Sean was the first to make his part.  This is what it looks like when a student accomplishes his very first part on his own.   Congratulations to Sean, he did a great job!  The other students will make their first part next week.

Waste Management of Florida, Inc. donated a garbage truck to the Diesel program as part of the partnership project with the City of Tavares. Lake Technical College is currently seeking funding to build a diesel classroom and shop on the same site as the new Public Works Facility in Tavares.

ADULT EDUCATION

The past couple of weeks Adult Education students have been discussing future careers.  Thanks to our CTE instructors, we were able to send students to program shadow; they visited Welding, Diesel Technology, LPN and Cosmetology. They came back excited and rejuvenated to finish their TABE or GED tests so they can start as soon as possible.
