Plant Tours

Plant tours serve the purpose of providing students a glimpse of the manufacturing environment. Our tours are structured to allow ample time for question and answer sessions with plant personnel. There are occasions in which a detailed write-up of the tour is required as part of a course assignment. The selection of plant sites to visit is made in a manner that will expose students to a wide variety of products, methods, and technologies.
