November 16, 2009 - ANAHEIM, CA – Cerritos College Economic Development in partnership with California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC) attended WESTEC tradeshow, the largest cutting-edge Machine Tool and Manufacturing event on the west coast, earlier this year. Our attendance at this event resulted in a highly lucrative collaboration between Cerritos College Economic Development, our Machine Tool Technology Program, and Verisurf Software, Inc.
Verisurf Software, Inc. is a California based software development company that specializes in computer-aided inspection and manufacturing software for a variety of industries. Verisurf offered a donation of 24 seats of software (valuing a total $528,000) in exchange for Cerritos College paying to have one faculty member trained in the Verisurf software as well as produce a series of hands on training videos featuring the capabilities of the software that our students can use as well as other Verisurf customers. Our instructor, Yannick Real, was selected to attend the training, create videos showing the basics of the program and some hands-on applications as well as assist with the installation process.
Cerritos College Economic Development and the Machine Tool Technology department is very excited that this collaboration will benefit our departments for years to come because our campus has been designated as the beta test site for future trainings through Verisurf. Our students will have the most up to date software and equipment because of the donations we received.
