Vermont Tech’s Continuing Education & Workforce Development Division announces that Instrumart, a leading distributor of industrial instrumentation headquartered in South Burlington, Vermont, has joined its Employer Partner Program.
“This type of partnership is really impactful for our students,” said Maureen Hebert, Associate Dean of Industrial Relations & Workforce Development at Vermont Tech. “The scholarship funding can mean the difference between completing their education or not, and paid summer internships enable students to get real world experience in their area of interest and build a relationship with the employer.”
Vermont Tech’s Employer Partner Program
Vermont Tech offers a program that gives employers the opportunity to help train and shape the workforce that will move their industry forward and help keep their local communities vibrant.
The Employer Partner Program leverages support from Vermont employers to furnish students with financial resources to obtain a college degree. Participating businesses and organizations play a key role during every step in the process, providing students with career guidance, meaningful workplace experience, and the opportunity to start working immediately following graduation. Employers benefit by developing a pipeline of local students who are trained in a relevant degree program and are engaged in both their workplace and their city or town.
“The Associates in Electric Engineering Program at Vermont Tech provided me with engineering skills and technologies knowledge that helped me progress my career from a Lab Technician to an Applications Engineer at Instrumart,” said Mark Dion, an Applications Engineer at Instrumart and a graduate of Vermont Tech’s Associate in Electrical Engineering program.
“The education was well-rounded and not solely based on engineering designing, testing, and building. My professors were always available for further discussion and helped me throughout my program. The skills that I learned in the Vermont Tech lab directly influenced my ability to provide technical support and application advice to the customers I talk to daily. I strongly recommend the Electrical Engineering Program at Vermont Tech for those looking to jumpstart their Engineering career.”
