Davis also said academic advisors will be on hand if potential students or parents want to pick and advisor’s brain about anything.

“Coming to campus and connecting with faculty members, staff, past and current students is a fantastic way for individuals to truly see and experience what is possible,” added Davis.

The polytechnic university will have info sessions about various trades programs. Some of these will include sessions on: Advanced Farrier Training; Appliance Service; Automotive Service; Carpentry; Electrical; Masonry; Mechatronics; Metal Fabrication; Millwright; Parts, Warehousing, Logistics and Distribution; Plumbing and Piping; and Welding.
