SCOOBA, Miss. (WCBI) – Marketing students at EMCC are getting experience in the transportation industry.
Yesterday, October 12, the students toured Airbus and the Golden Triangle Regional Airport, learning how each industry operates.
They also learned what it takes to keep these companies up and running, and profitable.
The students spoke to the pros about how helicopters and planes are made.
EMCC Marketing student Haley Tallent says, “It takes 350,000 hours of manpower to build each and everyone of these machines. And they want it done safely. They want us all safe so it does take a lot to build these machines.”
Students also say these field tours give them valuable, hands-on experience.
