ATC Program Review
The CNM School of Applied Technologies reached out to prospective students this month with three events at the CNM Workforce Training Center, which informed interested parties about the Surveying Engineering, the Electronics/Advanced Technologies, and the Film Post-Production Technician programs.

On Aug. 2, the new associate's degree in Surveying Engineering was the featured subject. Presenters included CNM instructor Amy Ballard, equipment suppliers and industry representatives, plus a student from the bachelor's degree program at New Mexico State University; CNM has a 2+2 agreement with NMSU for graduates to transfer there for their final two years of study for a bachelor's degree.

WTC Program Review
Attendance at the Surveying Engineering session was great, with an enthusiastic crowd estimated at over 50 showing up. The Electronics and Advanced Technologies event on Aug. 9 was a similar success, as instructors Andy Huertaz and Matt Pleil, students and industry speakers gave attendees a picture of upcoming changes in the fields of electronics, micro-manufacturing and laser optics. Explanations of the technology and job opportunities available were well received by an attentive crowd.

The final information session on Aug. 16 will focus on the new Post Production Certificate in the Film Technician program. Instructors Jim "Grubb" Graebner and Barton Bond will show Lost in Spaceship, a video made to promote the program and illuminate the roles of editing, sound design, special effects, camera operation and storyboarding in the movie, TV and video industry. Another boffo crowd is expected at this star-studded event, to be held from 6-7 p.m. in Room 103 at the Workforce Training Center.
