On behalf of the AMET Team, I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate the students from the Aerospace Manufacturing Engineering Technology program who attended the 2017 Provincial Skills Competition and representing Confederation College.  3rd year Graduating Students John Swayze Competed in Mechanical Cad took a 10 place out of 11.  His scope involved reverse engineering a complex component and make a readable drawing to enhance manufacturing.  Jason Reel a 3rd year graduating student placed 8 out of 13 in the Computer Aided Manufacturing along with 2nd year student Alex Smith who took 7th place.  Their scope involved drawing a complex component from a blueprint then create a CNC machining cut tool path using Master-Cam.  Alex had a tough competition in Precision Machining going against apprentices ready to write their papers and placed 10 out of 17.  Way to go AMET!!
