Recommendations

  • To enhance the program and to give students more exposure, we would recommend offering field trip to corporations and or facilities that use the software for projects and services.
  • Offering assessments to determine basic mathematic skills
  • Determine if including staffing services within the GET-IT program will be beneficial for students.

*** - GET-IT has created work-related projects similar to the tasks that have been performed for its clients. An example of this work would be distributing as markups to the students and the students will be given a timed-task to make the revisions to the 3d model so that the drawings will be updated and accurate to the specifications for manufacturing.
