The Pathway to a High-Demand, High–Wage Field in Advanced Manufacturing Starts at ChattState

I am excited to feature one of the newest departments within the Engineering Division at Chattanooga State Community College–the Institute of Material Joining and Testing (IMJAT). Catherine Bovell, IMJAT Career Counselor, shares with us the exciting Associate’s degree programs offered within IMJAT that provide rapid training and retraining designed to meet the needs of area employers and employees. The two career pathways are Welding Engineering Technology and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), both high-demand and high-wage fields in advanced manufacturing.
