Paul Weeks
HCCC has offered me the chance to work and familiarize myself with a wide array of equipment and machines. The expertise and knowledge that the professors bring into their classes has been the greatest resource and I continue to find myself surrounded by passionate educators. Projects I’ve had the privilege to work on have introduced me to everything from thermo-chromatic compounds to aerial modeling of Hudson County.
