Tech school facilities, programs grow

Abstract:
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.
