We have determined that this information is publicly unavailable as third-party sources also did not yield the required details. For such programs, the cells were filled with 'N/A'. Further inquiries can be made by contacting the institutions or their representatives directly.

Educational Programs Details - Charlotte 3

Introduction

This research provides the required details for the given educational programs in Charlotte, NC, in rows 23-32, columns E-G and I-L on the "Charlotte, NC" tab of the attached spreadsheet. Below are a few selected findings from the research.

Selected Findings

  • Phil Rouse is the Program Chair for the Electrical Systems Technology program at Central Piedmont Community College. He can be reached at 704.330.2722 or phillip.rouse@cpcc.edu.
  • Donald (Britt) Sowell is the program contact for the Electrical Systems Technology, AAS A35130 program offered by Guilford Technical Community College. He can be reached at 336-334-4822 or dbsowell@gtcc.edu.
  • Electrical Lineworker is a 12-weeks training program from Stanly Community College that provides students the knowledge and climbing skills necessary to enter into the field of power distribution as an Electrical Lineworker. The total cost of the program is approximately $403.50.
  • As per data from College Board, Jennifer Propst is the Director of Enrollment Management at Western Piedmont Community College. She can be reached at 828-448-6051 or jpropst@wpcc.edu.

Research Strategy

For this research, we have leveraged the most credible sources of information in the public domain, including each college/program's website, press releases, social media platforms, blogs, student handbooks, and program brochures. While we were able to garner most of the required information through these sources, no details about the fees of the various given programs could be found. To further search for the fees data for various programs, we looked through media articles from Forbes, WSJ, Businesswire, Live Mint, PR Newswire, etc., and various college information blogs like College Navigator, College Insight, College Board, StudyUSA, and The Choice, among others. However, even after a comprehensive search through these resources, we were unable to find any program-specific fees data. Only the general fee structure was available for the given colleges/institutions. Hence, we have marked the corresponding cells as 'N/A' in the spreadsheet. Also, in certain cases, details of the program coordinator or director were not available. In such cases, we have included the contact details of the admissions or a related department of the college (like Student Affairs). For determining the educational and general prerequisites for various colleges, we have leveraged their admission policies in general to extract the required information. Lastly, for the length of each program, we have updated the nearest available option from the drop-down menu. For example, all 2-year courses have been labeled as 'Under 2 years,' and all 1-year courses have been marked as 'Under 1 year'.

Educational Programs Details - West Columbia 3

Introduction

The requested information on the previously identified educational programs in West Columbia, South Carolina, has been entered into rows 23 through 32, columns E through G and I through L of the attached spreadsheet on the "West Columbia, SC" tab.

Summary

  • The Automotive Technology Associate Degree program offered by Midlands Technical College costs around $13,528.00. This figure does not include fees and the cost of equipment.
  • Central Carolina Technical College's Engineering Design Technology Associate Degree in Applied Science program is a two-year degree program, and the only general prerequisite is that the attendee is a student.
  • The contact for the Basic Mechatronics Technology Certificate program at Central Carolina Technical College is Bert Hancock, the Dean of Industrial and Engineering Technology. His email address is hancockhi@cctech.edu.

Research Strategy:

For this request, we primarily relied on sources provided by the educational programs and colleges themselves, as they serve as reliable, direct sources. We scanned through each of their official websites, focusing on the areas dedicated to the identified educational programs. Using these sources, we were able to locate most of the requested details. However, we were unable to find the cost of the educational programs offered by ECPI University and Central Carolina Technical College through these sources. We searched through reports, fact sheets, and other documentation provided by the programs and colleges to see if we could find this information. Although we were able to estimate the cost of the programs offered by Central Carolina Technical College using a document on tuition rates provided by the institution (multiplying the total number of required class hours by the tuition rate), we could not find any data on the Mechatronics AS program for ECPI University. We then conducted a general search to see if this information was available through the public domain. Nevertheless, this research path did not yield the results we were seeking. Therefore, we marked the cell in column I of row as "N/A".

Educational Programs Details - West Columbia 4

The contact information, program cost, length, and the prerequisites of the assigned educational programs are provided in columns E-G and I-L, rows 33-42, on the "West Columbia, SC" tab of the attached spreadsheet.

Selected Findings

  • Ladell Humphries is the contact person for the Advanced CNC Programming Certificate program at Central Carolina Technical College.
  • Stephanie Phillips is the contact person for the Electronics Engineering Technology Electronic Instrumentation program at Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College.
  • Dave Odom is the contact person for the Engineering Design Technology program at Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College.

Research Strategy

Except for the programs offered by Technical College of Low Country, the cost for the assigned programs had to be calculated based on available information about tuition and fees. For example, programs offered by Central Carolina Technical College cost $331 per credit hour for out-of-state students (the most costly rate). Where a range of credit hours was possible for a program, we used the upper bound value for the calculation. None of the programs indicated any educational prerequisites, so we entered "None" in column K of the spreadsheet.

Educational Programs List - Columbus 1

A list of 22 active educational programs in Columbus, Ohio, and various surrounding metropolitan areas (within a 150-200 mile radius) were provided in the Columbus, Ohio tab of the attached spreadsheet. For each program, the following details were provided: company or organization name, program name, program type, program locations, and a link to the program website. Some selected findings and the research study used were presented below.

Columbus, Ohio Educational Programs for Manufacturing Careers

Research Strategy

To build a lost of 20 active educational programs in Columbus, Ohio that help provides a pathway for people looking to get into manufacturing jobs, we leveraged the most reputable sources of information in the public domain including education-related websites, higher education websites (Columbus State Community College, Ohio Manufacturing Institute, etc.), manufacturing industry association sites (Ohio Manufacturer's Association, etc.), educational and training center directories (Workforce Connections Directory, etc.), job posting sites (Indeed, LinkedIn, etc.), career-oriented articles (My Next Move, etc.), and other similar sources. We then focused on educational programs that can help people who are looking to get manufacturing jobs. We made sure that the programs are still active based on the recency of the dates and the information on their websites. We also focused on programs that can help these job-seekers to acquire expertise that can help them get hired in these given manufacturing-related jobs: welders, tool and die maker, electrician, fabricator or machinist, and other relevant positions. Since the programs in Columbus, Ohio are limited, we expanded our search to include the surrounding areas that are within a 150-200 mile radius of the city based on the distance calculation feature in Google Maps. Some programs belong to several program types but we selected the most dominant type based on the features and available information provided in the sources.

We also focused on programs from Columbus, Ohio, but determined that information was limited and had already been included during the initial submission. Therefore, we expanded our search to include the surrounding areas, within a 150-200 mile radius of the city, based on the distance calculation feature at Map Developers. We identified 20 additional active programs through this procedure.
