“We really want our students to get a project-based learning instead of just cramming in a few concepts. When they go out, see problems on the job site and safety conditions, I think they learn a lot and they come back with a very different perspective. And that’s what we really love about our students. I have not seen a single student in my four or five years of experience saying that they were not able to find a job within one year of their graduation.”
