Hudson Valley Community College’s TEC-SMART extension center in Malta will hold an open house and information session 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 12, 2016.
The open house will allow those interested to find out more about the programs and courses offered at TEC-SMART. Tours of the facility will be offered. Information sessions will focus on two new academic degree programs offered by the college — mechatronics and clean energy management.
The mechatronics associate in applied science degree will prepare graduates to enter the engineering and manufacturing industries as technicians, inspectors or testers working on multimillion dollar machines and devices in a variety of high-tech industries. The clean energy management associate in applied science degree combines hands-on training in sustainable energy with courses in business, sales and management.
Admissions and financial aid representatives also will be on hand.

In addition to housing classrooms for Hudson Valley Community College courses in technology, computer science, the liberal arts and business, the facility also hosts the Clean Technologies and Sustainable Industries Early College High School program, a collaboration with the Ballston Spa Central School District that educates more than 250 students from 24 school districts around the region.
The open house will coincide with the 4th Annual Girls in STEM event at TEC-SMART, an opportunity for girls in grades 4-8 to participate in a fun and interactive day that features hands-on workshops. The Girls in STEM event is hosted by the Center for Economic Growth.

High school students interested in a career in engineering are encouraged to attend “Experience Engineering,” a free panel discussion featuring engineers and engineering students from 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4 in Hudson Valley Community College’s Bulmer Telecommunications Center meeting rooms.
Engineers and engineering students from area colleges will share their experiences and answer questions from audience members. Speakers will provide insight into what it’s like to be an engineer, what education is required and career opportunities in engineering.
The panel discussion seeks to encourage women and minority students in particular to consider a career in engineering, since both groups are traditionally underrepresented in the field. All students and their parents are welcome to attend the event.
For more information, call Hudson Valley Community College’s Department of Math and Engineering Science at (518) 629-7358.
