Our long history extends past the beginnings of the School of Manufacturing and Engineering by many years. This has allowed us to take advantage to a very strong reputation that the Hawthorne Metal Shop, Wood Shop, Drafting Classes has established in the surrounding industries.
This being the case many of our students have had the privilege to work at many of the local area companies in many different capacities.
HHSME has job shadowing and internship opportunities, that allows our students a inside look at what the future might bring for their individual careers. These range from 20 hours to over 200 hours + , working with industrial professionals on site at one of our industry partner's facilities.
Many of these Shadowing/Internships have evolved into full time and part time employment for our students. Many of these program require our students to continue with higher education while working after graduation.
