New Penn College Video Showcases Four-Year Electronics Major


The rewarding opportunities available in electronics and computer engineering technology are explored in the latest video added to Pennsylvania College of Technology’s YouTube channel.

The three-minute video highlights the bachelor-degree major through the eyes of Jorgette N. Grosso, of Boonton, N.J., a 2012 graduate.

Grosso serves as a role model for young women interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. The possibilities offered by that career cluster are apparent throughout the video as Grosso navigates her final semester at college and completes her senior project: an autonomous color-tracking robot.
