Charles Padgett and Cris Rosario of the Engineering Technologies design program at Isothermal

In The News:

11/1/2006: Charles Padgett, a student taking engineering design classes at Isothermal Community College shows some of his course work to Crisostomo "Cris" Rosario of AGI Schutz Merchandising. Rosario, AGI’s director of design development, spent several hours Tuesday speaking individually with graphic and engineering design students. The students are taught by instructors Amber Thompson and Cathy Alexander. Rosario is looking at the possibility of starting an internship program at AGI, a Forest City manufacturer that makes display fixtures for companies including American Greetings and UPS. The program would allow ICC students to get real-world experience in the field of engineering design. “ We’re just trying to build some bridges,” said Rosario. “From the student's perspective, they get to see the concepts they’ve learned about in class being applied in an actual manufacturing setting.”
