Information Sessions for Careers in Power Engineering
HFCC will host four information sessions for the College’s Power/Building Engineering Program. These sessions take place in Room T-107 of the Technical Building on the main campus at 1 p.m. on the following dates:
- Saturday, March 29;
- Saturday, April 5;
- Saturday, April 12; and

HFCC is a partner in the Center for Energy Workforce Development (CEWD). The HFCC Power/Building Engineering Program is working on efforts to educate and train qualified graduates to fill gaps in the power generation/energy workforce. The CEWD has predicted that approximately 46 percent of the workforce (roughly 200,000 highly skilled workers) may need to be replaced soon due to retirement or attrition.
Faculty from HFCC’s Power/Building Engineering Program and Energy Technology Dept. will host the following information sessions, which are sponsored by Consumers Energy:
They can also tour the HFCC Co-Generation, hands-on power plant facility and get the chance to operate live equipment and systems in the Power/Building Engineering labs under supervision.
Admission sessions may be set up by appointment with HFCC counselors at 313.845.9611 or set up with Power/Building Engineering faculty while attending one of the information sessions.
Although these information sessions are free and open to the public, pre-registration is required to attend. To register, please contact James Martini at 313.845.6453 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Martini will also be available for questions and further information.
