MEMS:  Careers for Now and the Future

Vanderford with students

Micro Electric Mechanical Systems is a relatively new program at Lorain County Community College but it has great success. Students are required to be involved in internships which most often proceed into full-time jobs while receiving a degree and supporting local manufacturers who are in need of the skilled workers.  Johnny Vanderford (pictured with students) is the Director of the MEMS program at LCCC.   He explains how the program works, the fact that employers are asking for these student interns, and the high success rate of student employment once they finish and without a lot of college debt.
