Ohio Means Internships & Co-ops Featured on MFGTMW

The latest segment of the Manufacturing Tomorrow podcast captures two Central Ohio Ohio Means Internships & Co-ops programs focused on advanced manufacturing work experiences. The first event was held at an Engineering Career Fair at the co-located campuses of Central Ohio Technical College and OSU-Newark.  The students were exposed to internship opportunities with area employers and received job-driven training on critical thinking and human relations skills.

The second event was at the INNOVATE-O-thon developed by The Ohio State University Institute for Materials Research.  For this particular externship program, student teams focused on a mobility challenge that will help shape DriveOhio’s technology strategy. The students identified value propositions and built business cases for deployment of autonomous vehicles at Ohio State’s campus.

The Ohio Department of Higher Education developed and funded the Ohio Means Internships & Co-ops program to "close the skills gap, increase student completion and give Ohio a competitive advantage in the global human capital talent marketplace."
