Q&A with Terex

WHY PARTNER WITH PENN COLLEGE?

We need skilled craftspeople in heavy equipment and diesel technology. Penn College offers a national reputation for producing graduates who bring purposeful, innovative thinking to our industry. We are in great need in our Pennsylvania locations and throughout the United States and look to Penn College to help fill those gaps.

WHAT FIRST IMPRESSED YOU ABOUT PENN COLLEGE?

We were drawn to the broad range of programs provided along with the expansive educational and training labs for students. Additionally, the faculty-to-student ratio allows for greater individual attention. It’s clear that the entire Penn College staff is focused on the students’ success, which is reflected in the quality of students graduating as well as the college's incredibly high graduation placement rate.

HOW HAVE YOU BENEFITED FROM ENROLLING IN THE CORPORATE TOMORROW MAKERS PROGRAM?

The program provides more opportunities to partner with the college. The relationship framework has allowed us to work together to identify and develop areas of mutually beneficial engagement. As a result, we’ve seen greater recognition among students, faculty, and alumni of what our company has to offer as an employer, which can translate into greater recruiting success for Terex, and helps students and alumni find jobs they can turn into a career.
