GP makes donation to Co-Lin technology program
Georgia-Pacific recently donated to Co-Lin’s Automation and Control Technology program to help supply students with additional equipment, such as transmitters, piping, meters, and programmable logic controllers to monitor, troubleshoot, and calibrate processes such as flow, pressure, level, and temperature. These are all vital skills to ensure students are well-prepared to enter the workplace.
“We are very grateful for the generous donation that allows us to purchase modern industrial instruments and equipment that are vital components in many processing and manufacturing industries such as Georgia-Pacific,” said Mandy Case, program coordinator of Automation and Control Technology.
Co-Lin offers the two-year Automation and Control program on all three campuses and trains students for employment as an automated manufacturing systems technician in maintenance diagnostics, engineering, or production in an automation environment. Recent graduates of the program are now earning extremely-competitive salaries and benefits working for companies like Walmart Distribution, Nissan North America in Canton, Entergy, Grand Gulf Nuclear Station, International Paper, Sanderson Farms, and more.
