Electronics grads find jobs
If you’re looking for a college Workforce program that can lead to a good job, you can’t do much better than the Centralia College electronics offering.
Of the seven students who completed the two-year Electronics, Robotics & Automation training program this June, each one has landed a job. Several other students are expecting to finish some additional classes before they become eligible for the degree. Three of the grads found work at Honeywell in Renton working with aircraft control systems, and four grads were hired to work at Intel.
“It’s a hallmark of our electronics program,” Cal Taylor, program instructor, said. “We have excellent connections with companies including Intel and Honeywell, for example, and our graduates often are given employment offers even before they graduate.”
Taylor said that industry representatives have contacted him asking for potential employees. They do so, he said, based on the quality of Centralia College program graduates.
“We’ve worked with many of the leading regional electronics firms for many years. They know how and what we teach and they believe our grads are ready for work,” Taylor said.
Many of the electronics companies are adding workers and that projects well for Centralia College graduates, Taylor added.
