Edison sets info session on Honda program


PIQUA — Edison State Community College will host an information session for students and parents to learn about a partnership program with Honda.

The session will be Feb. 7, from 5 to 6:30 p., in the Robinson Theater on the Piqua campus.

Equipment service technicians are currently in demand at Honda and require technical and analytical skills to identify and solve problems quickly. The Edison State to Honda Manufacturing Pathway program will prepare students with the skills needed to take on these in-demand roles.

The program is available to students who opt to pursue an Associate of Applied Science in electronics engineering technology with a concentration in electro-mechanical or automation and robotics at Edison State.

Participating students will have the opportunity to intern at Honda up to 40 hours per week; work with a mentor to gain confidence and skills; earn money while completing a college degree; gain experience to add to their resumes; and graduate and start careers in modern manufacturing.

Interns will make at least $16 per hour, and those who are hired full time will start at more than $53,000 per year.

To register for the information session, call 937-778-7865 or email vfrench@edisonohio.edu.
