“This type of hands on opportunity is what industrial operations revolves around. UNK’s on track with more technical classes for students, and it makes that much more of a well-rounded crop of students. UNK’s Industrial Distribution program is building that placement platform for students through networking connections with impacted companies who are looking for people with these skills.
My advice is stay engaged. Do as much learning as you can to make school the best decision possible for you. There are so many different career paths, but it’s about where do you want to be.”
