Naugatuck Valley Community College Welcomes New Manufacturing Class

Naugatuck Valley Community College President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D., faculty and staff welcomed the evening cohort to the Advanced Manufacturing Technology program. In its ninth year, the program boasts 100% job placement. “Everybody who does the work, gets a job,” noted President De Filippis. The President reminded the students that “this is a place for everyone.” She described the Presidential Awards that are available to manufacturing students in the program who maintain a B average or better, and the additional incentives for the top ten students. Annually incentive courses and credentials are awarded to the top ten students in the manufacturing program. Based on GPA, the awards provide additional free educational training in the fields of Additive Manufacturing and Solid Works.  This mini one-week class is a highly-sought award.  In addition, all students who have a B or better average are awarded an OSHA 10 safety training certification.

The President closed her remarks with a poem, reminding the students of the importance of poetry in a well-rounded curriculum and in life. “Poetry ties the heart and mind together. It builds emotional intelligence.”

Director of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (AMTC), Joseph Defeo continued the program reminding the students about the importance of “showing up.” He referred to the resources available for students to get academic help and support with challenging subjects, including the tutoring center known as the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), the library, and of course their instructors. Defeo concluded his remarks with an overview of the program and reminded the students that there may be an opportunity for internships with any of the College’s 200 industry partners.

Enrollment/Retention Specialist in the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center, Deirdre D’Amore concluded the event with introductory activities to open the new semester for this cohort of 19 students. These students make up the evening cohort on the Waterbury campus. They attend classes from 2pm- 10pm, 5 days week for two semesters, some working a part-time jobs while attending.
