MOSCOW, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WOLF) — “I was a bit less of a book-learned student… I didn’t learn as well from lectures and things like that. I learned well when I could combine that with taking what I learned in the classroom and applying it right there in their labs.”
Wayne County native Fernando Marques always had a knack for technology, having a role on the Western Wayne High School robotics team.
He says the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology Program at Johnson College fit him best with his background.
“When I was coming out of high school I really wasn’t sure where to go. I actually haven’t found that degree program when I first graduated from Western Wayne. And then shortly after, I found their program so I had worked construction for a year to save up the money- and built a little bit of a buffer so that the following year I could start the AMET program,” said Marques.
