Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 17, 2006
Students interested in technical fields need all the help they can get to evaluate programs and careers. While there are sites on the web that explain careers in technical fields and career preparation options, there is nothing like talking to someone who works in that field and getting your questions answered.
To help students investigate technical programs and careers, the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston is offering a series of free information sessions. Each session focuses on one technical field. On Wednesday, March 22, 2006 at 6:30pm, two sessions will be offered and led by faculty from each department: Architectural Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology. Other sessions will follow, one for each technical program at the institute.
During the Architectural Technology information session, faculty and students from BFIT's Architecture department will be there to answer questions about careers, career options and how to get started in this field. You will learn about how architectural technicians fit into the architecture field and the BFIT articulation agreement with the Boston Architectural Center, an agreement that puts students on track for further study.
During the Mechanical Engineering Technology Faculty Presentation attendees will meet faculty and students from BFIT's Mechanical Engineering Technology program. You will learn about career options and outlook in the engineering technologies. You'll also hear about transfer opportunities to Northeastern University and other local colleges to continue your study.
For students interested in other technical programs, BFIT is also hosting an Open House on Saturday, April 8, 2006.
For more information or to register for one of these events, call BFIT at (617) 423-4630 or visit BFIT on the web at http://www.bfit.edu
