    The OnTrack Podcast with Judy Warner

    This week we had our first OnTrack Field Trip to Michigan Tech University where we learned how several lab spaces enable students to get hands-on with chemical and wet processes as well as prototyping and research, board etching and development as students work in small groups across campus at MTU. The resurgence in manufacturing across all sectors of electronic product design is calling for students to be fully equipped with the necessary skill sets to drive the next generation of technology.
