Headline: CBC Dual Enrollment to host Oil & Gas Technology Program Showcase

The Coastal Bend College (CBC) Office of Dual Enrollment is pleased to announce the CBC Oil & Gas Technology Program Showcase at Karnes City High School on Thursday, February 26, 2015 beginning at 12 p.m. This event will provide high school students in the surrounding area with an in-depth look at the Process Technology Mobile Trailer.

George Fiegel, a CBC Oil & Gas Dual Enrollment Instructor, will provide high school students with a demonstration, tour, and presentation on how the Process Technology Mobile Trailer is utilized at CBC. All of the state-of-the- art equipment that is currently housed inside of the Process Technology Mobile Trailer is supplemental material that is used by oil & gas instructors to reinforce the concepts that students are learning during the lecture portion of their courses.

The Process Technology Mobile Trailer contains equipment such as a mechanical training system, programmable logic controllers (PLC) suitcase trainers, basic electricity trainers, a pneumatics trainer, and a hydraulics trainer. Through the utilization of this equipment, CBC students receive the hands on training that they will need as they enter the workforce after graduation.

Representatives from CBC will be available to answer any questions high school students or staff may have in regards to specific certifications that CBC offers through the oil & gas program, the type of degree that a student is able to obtain if they wish to pursue a higher education in oil & gas, and the steps that are required for a student to participate in CBC’s dual enrollment program.

If you have any questions regarding the CBC Oil & Gas Technology Program Showcase or if you are an area high school that would like to attend this event with your students, please contact the CBC Office of Dual Enrollment via email no later than Feb. 24 at ode@coastalbend.edu.
