DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The electromechanical industry is searching for qualified, educated workers to fill positions in motor winding, motor repair and control, fluid power, pump mechanics, and switchgear. Technical colleges across the US exist to train students in a particular field so that their knowledge can be brought into the workplace, but, with dwindling state support and lack of funds and exposure, the necessary courses in electronic application and maintenance are being closed. Limited exposure to jobs in the electromechanical field contributes to the industry's struggle to fill positions and the technical college's battle of trying to keep courses afloat. Technical colleges can provide a student with hands-on training of motors and other machinery, but they cannot educate on every type of motor that will be used in the industry. While the industry and technical colleges are changing to accommodate the current economic climate, the students themselves are evolving as well.
