NVCC Hosts STEM and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Expo

NVCC Hosts STEM and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Expo

Fourteen buses filled with middle and high school students made their way to NVCC’s Technology Hall on Friday, November 3. The students attended the Waterbury Regional Chamber’s STEM and Advanced Manufacturing and Technology Exposition.  Twenty-one companies from the STEM and Advanced Manufacturing Technology sectors participated in the Exposition, which ran from 8 a.m. -2 p.m. Students had a chance to directly engage with local manufacturers and learn about job and career opportunities from area leaders in manufacturing. The event exposes students as early as elementary school to the possibilities of a career in manufacturing, with the hope of setting some of them on the path toward enrolling in programs like the one offered at NVCC.

WATR News Director, Christopher Fortier did a live broadcast airing on his daily news program Talk of the Town. Among those interviewed by Fortier was NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D. She cited the 100% job placement rate for graduates of the NVCC Advanced Manufacturing Technology Program, and the importance of events like this one to make sure students know the career opportunities available through this program.

On January 31, 2012, the State of Connecticut selected NVCC as one of three Connecticut community colleges to receive bonding dollars for a state-of-the-art manufacturing center on campus to meet the state’s manufacturing workforce needs. NVCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center provides students with hands-on access to state-of-the-art manufacturing technology in preparation for employment. Built on the region’s manufacturing roots and enhanced with modern advancements in technology and innovation, the Center is located in the spacious and modern Technology Hall and features manufacturing and technical education.

Community Artist and Instructor Reflects on Career, Art

Pasquale Joseph (Joe) DeCicco, an English adjunct at NVCC since 1989, is known for his relief carvings that grace many of the College’s walls. Prior to NVCC, DeCicco taught at Waterbury’s Crosby High School for 25 years. Aside from his love of education, DeCicco enjoys creating art for colleagues and the community. “I’m inspired by the idea of beauty,” he said. Last year, the Vatican accepted Joe’s gift of a relief carving depicting the face on the Shroud of Turin and sent Joe a “Thank You” from Pope Francis’ secretary. He also has carvings that were accepted by the past and present White House administrations.  A wood bas relief with acrylics of Abraham Lincoln created by DeCicco is included in the Spring 2018 NVCC Faculty Art show which is currently on display in the Community Room in Founders Hall.
