CSM Students ‘Soaring’ After Tour of SMHEC Engineering Labs
College of Southern Maryland engineering majors toured the classroom and lab facilities at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center in California to get a first-hand look at where they could spend their junior and senior years as University of Maryland students. Among those attending were Eddie Bowie of Hughesville, center, and Christopher Simmons of Marbury, left, who received instruction on the flight simulator from Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Program Analyst Kenneth Abell.
Through a partnership with the A. James Clark School of Engineering at UMD, the Navy and SMHEC, CSM students can earn scholarships, summer internships and employment with the Navy after earning their bachelor’s degrees.
“During the tour, current CSM students were able to see former CSM students hard at work, and former students gave advice on studying hard when they get accepted in the program,” said CSM Pre-engineering Program Coordinator Shadei Jones. “It was refreshing to witness the students’ excitement in connecting what they were learning in the classroom to practical applications.”
