UACCM DRAFTING STUDENTS GET REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE


The Bosch Security Systems plant in Morrilton, Arkansas, manufacturers of world-class, professional audio products turns to the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton to design the latest addition to its facility.

Bosch decided to turn the 17 acres of land located behind the plant into a half mile walking trail and has commissioned UACCM drafting students to submit design ideas for its construction. This will undoubtedly provide UACCM students with an opportunity to receive ‘real world’ drafting experience along with the potential to have an impressive addition to their resume before they even graduate. The drafting students have called upon the resources of the UACCM science department, graphic design, and surveying department for the layout and design of the walking trail. On November 9 at 2:00pm in the UACCM Fine Arts Auditorium, the students will have a preliminary presentation of the Bosh Walking Trail to help prepare them for the final presentation on November 16. Everyone is invited to attend the practice presentation. If you have ever considered perusing a degree in drafting, please feel free to attend the November 9 presentation so you can see firsthand what to expect should you join our drafting program. Contact Rachel Schell at (501) 977-2019 or schell@uaccm.edu for more information about the drafting program or the presentations.
