Students and the community are invited to learn about Western Nevada College's technical and manufacturing programs from 5-8 p.m. Oct. 3.
Visitors can tour WNC's technology programs and hear brief presentations from college faculty members. They can participate in information sessions and hands-on shop sessions, and attendees will have a chance to win one of two WNC course scholarships, a book scholarship or other prizes.

WNC's welding and precision machining programs are aligned with the National Manufacturing Skills Certification System, allowing students to earn nationally transportable credentials for careers in manufacturing.
Several other WNC technical programs that support manufacturing will be on display, including automated systems, construction project management and general industrial technology.
