ACADEMICS: CAT Field Study to FN America

Our Carolina Alliance for Technology (CAT) students within the engineering track attended a field study at FN America, a manufacturing corporation that uses a wide variety of engineers in their facility. Students were introduced to civil engineers, electrical engineers, industrial engineers, mechanical engineers, metallurgical engineers, and production engineers. FN America makes 95% of the issued personal weapons for the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy Seals. They also supply the Columbia Police Department. The students were fascinated with the production and design process. Our hope is that this amazing experience shows them the real world connection between the math in the classroom and the application in reality. A big thank you goes out to Mr. Greg Butler, CEO and all of his amazing staff members who made this an awesome experience that our students will never forget!
