Tech school facilities, programs grow
Bill Fish, 53, decided to explore something new after losing his job with 3M, where he worked for several years on machine design. After enrolling in a few computer classes at DCTC, he noticed an ad for a new nanotechnology program. "I felt there was some element of risk because it was a brand-new field," he said.
Fish took a chance. Last spring, he became one of the first 13 students to graduate from the program. He and nine other students broke into the industry, mostly as technicians making $35,000 to $40,000 a year, said Mike Opp, dean of transportation and industry.
