SFCC and LANL partnership supports revised program
SFCC and Los Alamos National Laboratory announced a partnership on April 15 in support of the revised Machining Engineering Technologies certificate. LANL has seen a steady increase in the need for machinists over the last six years and anticipates that the need will continue to expand.
President Becky Rowley, Ph.D., Director of LANL Thom Mason, Congressman Ben Ray Luján and New Mexico Higher Education Deputy Secretary Carmen Lopez participated in an online press conference moderated by SFCC Executive Director of Marketing & Public Relations Todd Lovato.
The college will start recruiting students this summer for the program, which will begin this fall. Students in the program would attend classes Monday through Thursday and then participate in a hands-on internship on Fridays at LANL. Those who go on to work at LANL have the potential to have a starting salary between $56,000 to $66,500 based on their education and experience.
