NVCC Hosted Second Annual Alumni Advanced Manufacturing Technology Event

NVCC Hosted Second Annual Alumni Advanced Manufacturing Technology Event

Naugatuck Valley Community College Alumni Association in collaboration with the Advanced Manufacturing and Technology Center (AMTC) hosted a gathering of manufacturing alumni, current AMTC students, faculty and staff at the Brassworks Brewing Company.

The second annual event, held in October, coincident with “manufacturing month” in Connecticut, gave students and graduates an opportunity to reunite with classmates, meet industry colleagues and enjoy craft beer and food. 

“Although it successfully reunites alumni, students, faculty, staff and local manufacturers, the event is actually a fundraiser, that supports students pursuing careers in manufacturing,” noted Angela Chapman, Associate Dean of Development and Alumni Relations.  “We are most grateful to our sponsors, the manufacturers whose support makes this event possible. Through their sponsorships, the College raised $13,800, all of which will be used to support manufacturing students.”

Manufacturing Sponsors included Vision Engineering, Belimo Aircontrols, Fairchild Auto-Mated Parts, Anomatic Corporation, Marion Manufacturing, ASML, Trumpf, Fryer Machine System, Click Bond, Samson Machine, Southington Tool and Manufacturing Corporation.

Director of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center, Joe Defeo commented, “This event gives us the opportunity to reconnect with our past AMTC graduates and to catch-up on their current careers. Many AMTC Alumni are still employed by the same manufacturing companies with whom we had placed them upon graduation.  It’s a great example for our students to see that many have also been promoted to increased responsibility, or moved on to other manufacturing opportunities that further their careers. We gratefully acknowledge the support of our manufacturing partners in the success of this event.”
