This week’s Hawk Owl Helpers and Heroes are the faculty and staff in NMC’s Marine Technology program, who have deployed three research buoys so that they can collect data from different sections of Lake Michigan including East Bay that has not previously ever had any measurements taken.

Collecting this data provides students with experiential learning opportunities, actively engaging them through relevant and ongoing experience, while doing the important work of monitoring the Great Lakes.

NMC is the only school in the country that offers a Bachelor’s in Marine Technology, and graduates have a 100% employment rate in the marine industry.

Who’s been a Hawk Owl Helper or Hero for you? Let us know at!
