1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
Great program. Even better instructors. I feel strongly that the intstructors, Myra and Mary, do
indeed care about both me and my success here as a student and, especially, as a Mechanical
Design student and a Mechanical Designer in general.
The program was a a fun challenge. The information taught related directly to the field and I
never felt like I was learning useless information. The hands on experience and tours we took
made the whole program come alive and make me feel like I was ready for the real world.

communication skills you learned.
Text Response
Never leave any question unanswered, no matter how small or dumb you may think it may be.
Also, my peers played an immense role in my success here. We all effectively learned how to
collaborate with each other in order to succeed. This collaboration helped shape our
comaraderie, trust, and respect towards each other. All this is what I call true team work.
The information I learned in speech class, helps me everyday I have a meeting at work.

I am able to

concepts.

6. Provide any comments you have on mathematical
concepts you learned.
Text Response
A great amount of the problems that you encounter can be solved mathematically and by
learning the concepts and required math, I was able to better understand how and why things
were the way the were. Of course though, being able to apply mathematical concepts relies
largely on the student's critical thinking skills which, just like any other skill, can be anywhere
from present to absent and so is completely subjective.

37. CONCLUSION - Please use this space to share any other
feedback, comments, or suggestions about your experience
at Western Technical College.
Text Response
In the course of two years, Myra and Mary helped transform me into an average person into a
more than capable mechanical designer. Throughout my time here, I effectively and efficiently
acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to become competent in my field.
This program was great! I landed a full time job already as a designer/drafter. My reviews have
been great and I don't feel lost at my job at all. Yes I have questions but I always have some
idea or knowledge of what I am suppose to do because of the great trainging at Western. I feel
very confident in my profession. I strongly support and recommmend this program.
Myra and Mary are great instructors, and it was great to work with them.
