to Engineering Jobs

The Engineering Primer program is a new opportunity for Hartford residents to get training and experience in new manufacturing technologies, earn an industry-recognized credential and interview for jobs with Connecticut manufacturers. This 10-week program is offered cost-free to Hartford residents 18-29.

You will participate in three main areas of study in the following disciplines:


Computer-Aided Design (CAD):

The CAD curriculum uses industry level software that is commonplace in Aerospace, Medical and product development companies. Sessions include using factory digital tools with product design simulation to create simple 3D models. Building on a teamwork experience lends itself to the everyday encounters in today’s manufacturing workforce.

Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing Technologies):

The Additive curriculum is Manufacturing Basics and Additive Manufacturing. This curriculum was developed with the influence of experts from Collins Aerospace and General Dynamics, Electric Boat. Facilitation and training use the Manufacturing-X-Digital education system.

Electronics and IoT (Internet of Things):

The IoT curriculum is electronics and internet development. MakerspaceCT instructors are credentialed in electronics and IoT development. Instructional guidance and workshops are provided by industry professionals. Students explore pathways formed by EIT Digital’s Architecting Smart IoT Devices program.

The Engineering Primer program includes workforce development education and hands-on learning in the above fields, resume writing, presentation skills, and introduction to professional practices.
