There will be three main projects along with a curriculum designed to introduce them to Entrepreneurship and the advantages an Advanced Manufacturing business brings to a community. We will also have a virtual visit from a major High-Tech company, Trumpf, Inc to show students how High-Tech Metal Fabrication is transforming the industry.


A full refund will be given to students/participants who officially drop the course by 5 pm at least 10 business days prior to the first class meeting, and a half refund thereafter. Business days do not include weekends or holidays. A student’s failure to attend does not constitute an official drop and no refunds will be granted.

My name is Albert Rossner, and I’m married and have four children with my wife, Holly. We have lived in Jackson County since 1996. All of our children graduated from Parma Western schools and received advanced college degrees. Our oldest graduated from Jackson College in the Nursing program and now resides in Greenville, NC as a Nurse Practitioner for a Cardiac Thoracic Surgeon. I’ve taught for over 30 years in the field of Advanced Manufacturing and Automation Robotics. Most recently I was a High School teacher at Northwest High School for their STEM program working directly with Technique, Inc.  At Jackson College, I plan to develop a more advanced program that incorporates High Tech, High Skill programs that lead to High Wage careers in Advanced Manufacturing, Automation and Robotics through Industry 4.0 Advancements alongside many Jackson, Hillsdale, and Lenawee county employers.
