The Regional Community College Twente (RCC), in collaboration with Techwise Twente and – for now – twenty-five regional companies, is therefore commencing this upcoming semester with the fulltime secondary vocational education (BOL 4) courses Machining Technician and Research Machine Maker. With these new courses, the East-Netherlands will soon have a number of young machining technicians that will make the realization of an efficient 24/7 production environments their core business, know which automation systems to use and are able to engage in the visualization process of the manufacturability of products. And will have research machine makers that are creative, are able to develop prototypes and test these with a number of different production methods.
These courses share a joint first year, after which the final choice between one of the two graduation directions will be made. The majority of the course will be formed by practical lessons in relation to projects at the intersection of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and IT. Internships and final projects will, of course, take place at companies across the region. For the Open Day of the courses on January 31st at the Gieterij, specific companies, involved in high-precision technology, have been invited and are given the opportunity to present themselves to the new students.
