KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College’s Design Technology Program will host an alumni forum on Wednesday, April 25, at 6 p.m., in the Theatre Room at the Kokomo Event and Conference Center. The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
The forum will offer prospective students and parents the opportunity to meet successful Ivy Tech Design Technology Program graduates, ask questions, and learn more about the program and career opportunities. The alumni will discuss their experiences at Ivy Tech, their job search and their current positions.
Program Chair Dan Ward hopes many people take advantage of the opportunity to learn from professionals in the field.
“Many people wonder about the employment outlook in the design technology field,” says Ward. “I continue to tell them that CADD is one of the most in-demand fields out there. I want both current and prospective students to hear firsthand from this diverse group of alumni what it is like to work in this field.”
Ward added that the program offers graduates many career path options and boasts a nearly 100 percent job placement rate.
Alumni panelists include Eric Ryder, Thermafiber; Erica McCarter, Total Electronics; Jeremy Pattee, Ivy Tech Community College; Scott Hartsock, SMC Pneumatics; Scott Fritsch, Chegar Manufacturing; Trevis Knall, Abresist; and Matt Martin, Girtz.
