SAN DIEGO — Classes are scheduled to begin Monday for tens of thousands of community college students around San Diego County. Some students will be carrying around guitars to promote a newer program at City College.
At City College, the second class in a Manufacturing Engineering Technology program will involve the design and construction of custom-made guitars.
College officials said the program is aimed at helping students become skilled manufacturing engineering technicians.
“We’re really excited about these guitar-building classes, as they provide yet another way for us to differentiate City College as a forward- thinking and innovative institution,” said interim President Denise Whisenhunt. “No other STEM classes end up in a jam session.”
Mesa College plans to dedicate a new student commons building next month, while Miramar College will offer certificates for emergency medical technicians, and graphics and visual productions.
