I liked the hands on experience that was gained. Also I think that the
small classes that Western offers are great because the teacher to
student time is awesome and very helpful. This was also a great
program because it gives me a wide variety of knowledge and opens
my job potential very far.
I liked the labs and hands on experience that I gained from the
program.
It was a very personal experience. The Instructors cared about how I
did, and work to help me succeed.
The instructors are very helpful and have care about your success.
I learned a lot in the program and think the instructors did an
excellent job of getting me ready for a job in the field.
the number of students was very good and easily manageable.
a lot of real world hands-on learning.
I enjoyed all my classes.
I like that Bill Welch taught the majority of it. You should dedicate
something electrical related in his honor. If you don't I think it would be
serious injustice considering the Welch name at this institution.
I was introduced to many aspects of electrical power systems and
automated control systems
The broad field of focus.
Hands on learning,and I was able to see how Mechanical drives and
mechanisms work.

Western Wisconsin Technical College

I can't think of anything, it was a great experience for me!
the program was good as a whole, if powssible I would like to see a
change in the general classes.
Nothing
I would add more printed reference material for the lab assignments in
the final semester
nothing
More funding for larger class projects.
The only thing I would Change about the program might be to add a
little more in depth instuction concerning PLC programming.
I would have mitch schultz instruct more classes for the benefit of the
students. The man is brilliant.
I liked the program just the way it was.
Tech. Math, It was I killer for me, but I do understand way it was
needed.
I would add welding to the program.

I think I would get rid of some of the non essential classes and
concentrate on the core coarses. It's much more important to get the
maximum time from the instructors learning what we'll be using on our
jobs.

Communication is a very important skill to all jobs.
learned to huse effective communication skills well.
I was able to understand and give feedback. Communication skill was
great.
YES
very good as far as the program classes, not so much in general
classes.
Yes, working in groups frequently forced communication.
Yes. I have no problem with that area of instruction.
I have learned a lot about written communications and how to deal
with peers and co-workers. My experience presenting ideas to larger
groups will benefit me.

Yes. Math is not my forte' but tech math with Todd Shaw was a terrific
learning tool I'll be able to use at home and on the job.
It was hard for me to start thinking about complex math, because I
had been out of school for a long time. Most of my instructors were
very patient and understanding. I feel like I have a better grasp on
mathematical concepts.
Math is used in all jobs and is essensial to electromechanical.
I believe Tech Math 1 should be spilt into two semesters. And there
should be a better screeing process before allowing students to take
Tech Math 1.
I had I very hard time with Tech. Math 1B, but I was able to retake the
clas; self study in the math lab and with instructors help I was able to
get through it.

All of the classes that I took mixed nicely with each other in helping
me to gain a broader understanding of social principals. I really
enjoyed my physics class also.
Not really. Again, I think the core classes are the most important.

Very much so. The course is designed to give us the very latest in
technology.
I have learned so much about computers and networking systems. It
is also exciting to learn about new advances in technology, such as
wind power.
