ATETV Episode 15: Environmental Engineering; Process Technology; Information Security

>>Coming up next on ATETV:
Engineering technology.>>With our technology programs any
opportunity to actually use the equipment that they’ll be using out in industry with equipment, software all those things we try
to integrate in the classroom.>>Process technology.>>We can look at a piece of
equipment like this and we know what that is and we know what it does.>>And information security.>>We tried to simulate protecting
your company from internet threats. These students really got a feeling for
the hands on, setting up the router, setting up the server, setting up the firewall and all the little problems
that go along with it.>>Now on ATETV. [ Music ]>>From across the country to your own backyard
ATETV shows you the many advanced technological education opportunities available
at your local community college. Water purification and air quality
operations require highly skilled well educated technicians. If a career in engineering technology with an environmental focus
interests you take a look at this. [ Music ]>>BCC much like many community colleges
essentially has an open door policy so if a student comes to us and they say they
want to join our engineering technology program or our engineering transfer
program we will let them in.>>This one should be powered
up if there’s any juice left.>>Technical schools and community
colleges we’re working towards a career program to help the people to get right into this work
force and give them the skills that they need.>>Environmental technology is
essentially any type of technology designed to protect or enhance our environment. We have a number of different
areas where you could go into. Anything from waste water and freshwater,
our water supply is extremely important and how we handle our water
after we’re done using it.>>What we’re trying to do is recreate
what’s going on in the treatment plant.>>We also do a great deal of work with GIS
because if you’re going out to check things in the environment to monitor what’s going
on you need to know exactly where it is and position and location often plays
a big role on things like water flow and digiography is an essential part of that.>>A line called a pizza metric service>>In addition to your technical courses you
also have a series of general education courses and so they’re gonna be taking math, English, history and then they’ll
take their main courses.>>And now you’ll see>>Intro to the environment>>This is a flowing artesian well>>waste water technology 1, they’re required
also to take CAD and the introductory course in computer skills for engineers cause this
is part of an engineering technology program.>>With our technology programs any
opportunity to actually use the equipment that they’ll be using out in
the industry whether equipment, software all those things we try
to integrate in the classroom.>>I take the students out to the field. We go to waste water plants, we go to drinking
water plants, we work out on the reservation with the water supply, it’s just invaluable for
the students to have that hands on experience. [ Music ]>>Jobs in engineering technology
are in high demand and your local community college
offers engineering technology programs that can help you begin a
rewarding and lucrative career. Are you interested in on the job training
while also earning academic credit? How about getting a secure high paying
technical job after just 2 years in school. Community colleges are working
closely with employers to make opportunities like these a reality.>>Remember this cause it’s gonna be on a quiz
somewhere: grease is an oil with an additive.>>This is the same type of equipment that
you see in refineries and chemical plants.>>Process technology is taking material
and turning it into something useful. For instance oil into gasoline, petrochemicals
into fibers for rugs, pharmaceuticals, even taking barley and malt
and turn it into beer. My name is Zachary Bundy I’m from Casper Wyoming. I’m attending College of the Mainland
for the Process Technology Program.>>So what we’re seeing here
is a distillation column.>>The internship is a very great experience. Its 300 hours of work experience and they’re
actually looking to hire you at the end of this. I think of it as you know a 1 or 2 month
maybe 3 month long interview for them to get a better look at you and as long as
you do a good job you’ll be hired out there.>>At first you know when you first get around this equipment you don’t know what
it does it could seem a little intimidating. The Process Technology Program has
really given me a great opportunity to get some hands on experience. We can look at a piece of equipment like this
and we know what that is, we know what it does. Making 30, 32 dollars an hour
at 23 is definitely a good thing so I’ll definitely be able to get
started off on the right track. I’ve already started my 401K and everything like
that so it’s definitely a good start and I plan on learning as much as I can and you know moving
up maybe even become a supervisor someday, maybe even higher than that you never know
what it’s going to bring but I just want to challenge myself and learn as
much about that plant as I can.>>Wow 300 hours of work experience while
still in college and then to be hired by your internship employer when you graduate. Your local community college
can help you get an internship and start your career in process technology. Internet security, cyber security it all
boils down to keeping information safe. If you love computers and are interested in
learning how to keep information safe be sure to check out security related
programs like this one. [ Music ]>>Here’s your router. It’ll go to the firewall. [ Music ]>>I’m Andrew Maynard I’m a CIT professor here at Springfield Technical Community College. You’re the web one.>>See protection… IP address range.>>So we connect everything to the
hub and something off the router.>>We have 4 degrees in our department. We’re preparing programmers for programming
jobs, we’re preparing web programmers for web programming jobs and then we also
have a microcomputer specialist degree and a information security degree and
there’s an awful lot of that stuff that even if outsourcing does become a big problem
that a lot of this stuff has to stay in the country or will stay in the country. Especially security is growing extremely
strong and there’s a strong demand for it.>>There’s a lot of sensitive information that’s
out there and we have to try and keep it secure so that the wrong people don’t get a hold of it.>>So obviously from a corporate
level they’re actually creating more and more just specific security jobs.>>So now you’re gonna want
to put what router here? You tell me what router you put in there.>>The internet 407.>>A lot of the businesses
are now paying attention to information security through
regulatory compliance. You’re seeing a lot of the states come out
with a new information security program that all businesses are gonna
have to comply with so the need for security professionals is increasing.>>You know you might end up as a junior
network person so you’re building firewalls, your protecting work stations
with antivirus software, you’re figuring out where the threats are
coming from, your eradicating viruses.>>There’s the router it’ll go to the firewall.>>We try to simulate protecting
your company from internet threats.>>Are you booting it? So now make sure you can
ping all the way through.>>There’s a lot of problems out there right
now you know people stealing we just want to prevent any attacks on companies in general.>>These students really got a feeling
for the hands on, setting up the router, setting up the server, setting up the firewall and all the little problems
that go along with it.>>Like you don’t see any
routes for the STCC network.>>Ok>>Today I’m working on ISO server. I’m working on actual Juniper routers. I’m dealing with actual real world items
and that’s just been you know invaluable.>>7, 2.>>Just put 0>>Not only do we try to give you
the necessary theory to be good but we also really try to
promote the hands on aspect. So if after 2 years you need a job you
can pretty much hit the ground running.>>The router itself can configure the
routes to go back and forth right?>>Highly skilled technicians who can set up
systems to protect electronic data are vital to our national security, are in very
high demand and make really good money. Check out your local community
college to see how you can get started in the field of information security. For more information on anything you’ve
seen today explore our website at Thanks for watching.
