LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - General Electric Appliances and the University of Louisville are tying their bonds a little tighter.
The two have partnered together by offering on-site graduate level engineering classes at Appliance Park.
University of Louisville President Dr. James Ramsey said Friday was a big day for the University; they've expanded classes and they've entered into a joint agreement with GE promising bright futures and new innovations. "Your scientists, your engineers, your technology people can work can work easily with the faculty at the University of Louisville on new processes, new ways of doing things."
Students will have five engineering job rotations while the company pays for the education. Dr. Ramsey said, "Their scientists, their engineers can work directly with our faculty. There's certain things that are just better taught in person than taught online and so it gives us that opportunity."
The Speed School of Engineering has already been teaching courses at General Electric's appliance park, but now they've added more where engineering students can earn their entire Master's Degree on site. Kevin Nolan, the Vice President of Technology for GE said, "This certainly sets the stage for a very beneficial collaboration that will quickly advance our technology strategy and help us retain and attract the best engineers there are."
