Scott Erath's Amityville Company Wm. Erath & Son, Inc. has helped build students' futures for nearly a decade by supporting the construction technology program at Suffolk County Community College with student internships, jobs and hardware.
“Industry partnership with higher education is a win-win situation,” said Suffolk County Community College Academic Chair of Science and Engineering Pete Maritato. “Industry partners have a pipeline to employees that are prepared and ready to work on their first day and our educational programs benefit from industry feedback allowing the alignment of courses to industries’ needs and providing ‘real-life’ work experience for students.”
