HVAC Students Win TechWarZ Competition at Lennox VisionTECH Conference
Earlier this month 31 students and faculty advisers from MATC's Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Club attended the Lennox VisionTECH Conference in Wisconsin Dells. Club members include students from the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology associate degree program and the Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating Service Technician technical diploma program.
In addition to the opportunity to attend educational seminars, listen to keynote speakers, network with potential employers, gain insight into the new technologies being introduced, and interview with over 20 Lennox dealerships for potential employment.
MATC won the TechWarZ competition that was held among all conference participants. As a result of the victory, more than $27,000 in HVAC equipment will be installed in the HVAC lab on MATC's Oak Creek Campus.
Faculty members met with Lennox representatives to discuss ways to attract more students to the associate degree and technical diploma programs. A summer internship program for HVAC/R students at greater Milwaukee area Lennox dealerships is being developed by MATC faculty. Lennox website
