Engineering Technology Scholarships
Triton College Engineering Technology students earn industry scholarships
Students enrolled in Triton College’s Engineering Technology program earned scholarships from industry organizations to support continuing their studies.
Hector Anguiano, Alan Montaño and Brenda Sanchez earned scholarships from Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs (NBT), a foundation focused on developing the next generation of manufacturers. NBT programs are designed to support and educate students to fill the pipeline of skilled manufacturing workers. The foundation’s scholarships assist students who want to pursue the advanced training needed for manufacturing industry careers. NBT is the foundation of the Fabricators and Manufacturing Association.
Additionally, Sanchez and Montaño earned scholarships from the IPC Education Foundation which creates connections between electronics manufacturers and supply chain companies, academia and the emerging workforce.
"As a proud member of IPC, a diligent college student, and future mechatronics engineer, I am honored to receive this scholarship. This scholarship means a lot more than just the money. The IPC scholarship is an important, and aiding step in the immense ladder towards achieving my goal of earning a degree in the engineering field," Montaño said.
The IPC Education Foundation partners with forward thinking original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), electronics manufacturing services (EMS) providers, PCB Fabricators and the entire electronics supply chain to provide learning and career opportunities for students all over the world.
"The IPC Scholarship means an opportunity to continue shaping the world of engineering for women for future generations. This scholarship will award me the opportunity to further my education in Mechatronics Engineering and make an impact on the industry," Sanchez said.
