Hawaiʻi Community College will host an open house on Tuesday, April 30, 5–7 p.m. to provide information about the college’s electronics technology and information technology programs. It will be held at the Hawaiʻi CC Manono Campus in Building 391, Room 6.

The professors leading the programs, college administrators, graduates and current students will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.

Open house attendees can also check out a laser display, a solar battery charger built by students from the electronics technology program and database programs IT students created from scratch. Potential students can earn what careers are available in these fascinating technological fields.

“Computers and electronics are central to the operations of business, government and nonprofit organizations, so there is always a demand for employees trained in these fields,” said Joyce Hamasaki, the interim dean of career and technical education at Hawaiʻi CC. “This open house is a great opportunity for potential students, parents, and other members of the public to learn about two exciting programs at the college that can lead to rewarding careers right here in Hawaiʻi.”
