Three new degree programs launch this fall at Sussex County Community College to give students even more ways to kickstart their careers.

Students in the all-new Diesel Service Technology, Supply Chain Management, and Optics Technology programs will be ready to join the workforce upon completion of their studies. Successful candidates will earn Associate in Applied Science degrees, which provide more advanced skill development than certificate programs, after their respective programs.

Each program runs approximately two years, with flexibility depending on how many courses are taken each semester.

Diesel Service Technology students will make use of both main campus and the new McGuire Technical Education Center to learn to evaluate, diagnose, and repair various Diesel systems; identify specifications related to the inspection, repair, and adjustment of Diesel systems; and use of various pieces of test equipment to diagnose and repair defects. Further discussion will be applied to basic electrical theory, safety in an industrial maintenance facility setting, and analyzing air conditioning and climate control systems, among other pertinent skills.

Those seeking to enter directly into a leadership position may be interested in Supply Chain Management. This program provides students with fundamental knowledge related to the field, including logistics and transportation, inventory control, warehouse management, accounting, business law, computer applications, and business and supervision tactics.

Last, but not least, Optics Technology will allow students to understand and interpret technical drawings and then turn them into reality. Students will learn how to use conventional and computer numerical controlled machines, like grinding and polishing systems, to create optical products. Safety, equipment handling, inspection, and ethics as related to the industry will also be covered.

To discuss any of these program options, contact Jason Fruge, program supervisor, at jfruge@sussex.edu. Sussex County Community College offers a wide range of academic, certificate, and workforce development programs across its campuses in scenic Newton, N.J.
