LIT awarded grant by Comptroller’s office for Process Operating

BEAUMONT – Lamar Institute of Technology was one of 18 colleges in the state of Texas to be awarded a JET Grant through the Texas Comptroller’s Office.

The JET Grant is a job-building fund that provides grants to colleges in the state so that they can acquire buildings and buy cutting-edge equipment to better educate Texas’ future workforce. The focus is on occupations that are needed by business and technology in the region.

Dr. Valerie Worry, program director for Process Operating Technology; Pat O’Connor, Chair of the Department of Technology; and David Mosley, Coordinator of Institutional Effectiveness and Grants, worked on the request.

LIT received $103,906 for its Process Operating Technology program. The money will purchase a simulator system, training workbooks and a virtual training environment.

In 2010, LIT received funds from the JET Grant for scholarships and for equipment upgrades for its Advanced Welding programs.
