Penn College transforms electrical labs

Pennsylvania College of Technology recently revamped more than a half-dozen labs in its Electrical Technologies Center. The labs, which serve four electrical degree programs, consist of new equipment and scores of individual work stations for students. About 100 students per semester receive vital hands-on experience in the industry-standard labs – including Tyler J. Snook, a mechatronics major from Williamsport. “In this field where everything is hands-on, if you don’t get any of that experience, you’ll get out there and someone will be like, ‘Hey, work on this,” and you’ll have no idea where to begin,” he says in a video about the labs’ comprehensive upgrade.
