The Morris County Vocational School District in partnership with County College of Morris will hold an Information Session for their joint Share Time Engineering Design and Advanced Manufacturing (EDAM) Program on Wednesday, Jan. 13 at 6 p.m., at CCM’s Sheffield Hall.
Interested sophomores and their families are invited to learn about this two-year, half day program that provides students with an opportunity to earn 32 college credits from CCM and Certificates of Achievement in Mechanical Computer Aided Drafting and Engineering Technology.
EDAM is designed for students with an interest in engineering, computer applications and manufacturing who will learn through college-level work and hand-on activities. Students will utilize cutting edge technologies in a newly renovated state of the art facility at CCM, and will prepare for careers in a growing industry.
Coursework includes basic engineering graphics, computer-aided drafting, materials for engineering technology, technical computer applications, mechanical prototyping, and electricity and electronics. The program also will include work-based learning experiences through industry partnerships.
Upon completion of the program, students may enroll in CCM’s Mechanical Engineering Technology program for one additional year to earn an associate’s degree. They also will have the option to continue on to a four-year college or university or pursue workforce placement.
Students in 10th grade may apply via online application at www.mcvts.org under Admissions>Application Form> Share Time Programs tabs. The application deadline is April 4th.
