Narrative

This project is a comprehensive plan to increase the levels of enrollment, completion and placement leveraging funds from other sources as well as close relationships with business partners. An articulation agreement would be developed and automotive textbooks for non-credit students would be purchased. These students would also receive a certificate of basic skills completion. Funding would be leveraged to develop and implement a system of co-enrolled automotive students at Valley High School. Working with members of the BSI-SOT Grant, the automotive program would pay for students who successfully completed Key Train modules to become certified through WorkKeys, a nationally recognized employability certification used by manufacturers such as BMW. Equipment and supplies would be purchased to develop and deliver training required to meet the needs of the changing mobile air conditioning industry. This project would develop IPad based foundations of air conditioning training modules to be used in the Automotive and Workforce training courses. Training as well as certification would increase in the areas required by EPA in refrigerant handling. Non-traditional students would have increased access to high paying jobs. This project should be able to sustain itself once put into place and has been discussed and approved by the Automotive/Diesel Advisory Committee. (The completion projections are based on numbers achieved prior to instituting certificate and degree tracking software programs. Beginning in 2014, there was a huge effort at Santa Ana College to reach out to thousands of students within the past 10 years who were very close to completing a certificate and/or degree program. This resulted in a spike in completions during the next 2-3 years. There is no way these high numbers can be maintained throughout this funding period. The projections are based on the numbers from the prior years—2013-2014 and earlier. Additionally, Santa Ana College began offering a spring intercession in 2013 and this is not guaranteed to be offered in future years).

Narrative

The proposed project is to fulfill the increasing rise in the demand for bus and truck mechanics in Orange County. The project involves a set of engines, software, and curriculum development that would bridge the gap in employment for occupations in high demand. Our industry is vast and by analyzing the data, it was discovered that bus and truck mechanics and diesel engine specialists are in the top 50 occupations growing in Orange County. As a school that works closely with the Air Resources Board, a CAL/EPA branch dedicated to clean air, regulations for clean engine compliance is crucial to minimizing air pollution. Students that have an educational background in engine operation, repair and their after-treatment systems would have training necessary to enter the workforce prepared to tackle this type of real-world problem solving. Mid-Range engines are on many buses and trucks that are pivotal to many types of businesses including small and large companies such as school districts, parcel and shipping companies and bus companies. Business partners such as OCTA will be donating used engines for tear down and assembly hands-on practice. Cummins will share factory training materials to be used in the Diesel Technology Program. This project has been discussed and approved by the Automotive/Diesel Advisory Committee.

Narrative

Three important trends are shaping robotics and automated welding in the U.S.: the reversal of offshoring, the use of automation for repetitive and dangerous tasks and a shortage of skilled welders. According to the National Association of Manufactures and Fanuc, as employment trends continue to grow, so do the shipments of robots into the manufacturing sector. In 2011, Deloitte reported that there are 600,000 skilled labor positions that cannot be filled today and more than 80% of manufactures claim that they are experiencing a shortage of skilled workers.
Vision Systems Design has speculated that the robotic market will quadruple by 2025, with the segment of industrial robots growing from $5.8MM to $24.4MM.
This proposal will purchase 2 robotic welders, one orbital welder and one laser welder. This will also include the necessary supplies and software to operate this equipment.

Narrative

This project would be aimed at getting necessary equipment, supplies, and personnel to enhance the biofuel component of the Biomanufacturing laboratory. Biofuel production during the Biotechnology Lab Assistant Certificate is one of our most popular projects but there are few opportunities for them to continue developing their biofuels skills in the higher certificates. In order to maintain and increase success and retention, we would like to provide opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience in all aspects of biofuel production. Students will learn in a work-based manner to produce fuel starting with feedstock production (algae/plant culturing and transformation techniques) to extraction, refining, and testing. The ultimate goal each semester long project is for students to grow their own fuel and run it in a diesel engine. This proposal is to obtain the equipment, supplies, and personnel necessary to set-up biofuel production at SAC. This will include algae culture and transformation equipment at both laboratory and production scales, oil extraction equipment, a biodiesel refinery, and testing equipment. In addition, equipment and supplies, this proposal is also to hire a lab coordinator to receive, setup, and maintain the biofuel equipment as well as coordinate outreach and recruitment.

Narrative

The Music Department is revamping the Digital Music Production curriculum with two goals in mind: 1) developing career pathways from the high school level and 2) attracting greater gender equity (only 18% of students in this program are female). Both the Orange Unified School District and the Santa Ana Unified School District are interested in pathways to our program. These pathways as well as pathways to employment require us to integrate ProTools industry standard software into our curriculum. Also, our new classes Introduction to Game Music (MUS_153) and Beginning Audio Production (MUS/TELV_152) will need this software support. MUS_152 is a new broad based audio class that is an essential curricular requirement for Music programs. We anticipate that a more diverse group of students will find interest in the course content of both MUS_152 and 153. We are also integrating "Vocaloid" technology into the curriculum, a digital means for emulating female voices that is becoming popular in music production. This, in conjunction with active promotion of our program will foster greater interest with both genders.
In order to present these innovations, we need to update the computers and install specialized software in our Music computer labs.

Narrative

The TV/Video discipline is responding to student and industry needs by writing and revising innovative curriculum. These efforts need to be complemented with new software and equipment. In particular, the TV/Video department is incorporating HD (High Definition) throughout all programs. HD video is the industry standard for all television productions. The investment into the TV/Video department will allow our students to move from editing in standard definition to creating content in HD. It will also support our new classes Cinematography and Agency Video Production, which will need to produce content in HD. Working with HD content will improve all students' abilities to transfer their industry standard HD editing skill sets into Southern California's vibrant video production and post-production industry. In order to present these innovations, we need to update the computers and install specialized software in TV/Video computer labs.
