BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Students at Northeast Mississippi Community College (NEMCC) are learning how to design our future.

The Drafting, Design, and 3D Modeling program is a two-year program that allows students to get a hands-on look at the industry.

Instructor Jeff Melson teaches students how to create and build various products like homes, prosthetics, guitars, and more from computers.

Recently, students completed a sound booth inside of Hinds Hall on campus. This new addition will increase the quality of musical productions taking place inside the theater.

This program also offers eligibility for the Tiger Apprenticeship Program, which gives students a paid opportunity to work within a company while in college.

Jessilyn Standford and Chelsea Wilburn are two students taking part in the Tiger Apprenticeship program. Both students will begin working for Cyient, a global engineering and technology solutions company, in January.

For more information on how you can enroll into this program, contact Melson at 662-720-7326.
