Electrical technology and mechatronics engineering technology students attended the Schaedler Yesco Expo 2018 at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center on Wednesday. The expo is the premier electrical trade show in Central Pennsylvania, with more than 100 booths from prominent manufacturers. The event also provided more than 70 industry-related seminars and hands-on labs that students could attend. The students, instructed by Jon W. Hart and Vince R. Fagnano from the electrical technologies/occupations faculty, had a chance to examine the latest automation and control products from Rockwell Automation and other leading manufacturers.
