Celebrating 10 years of success!
Published November 27, 2017
BTEC celebrated its 10-year anniversary last month with a party attended by over 250 individuals. Alumni and friends packed BTEC’s halls and classrooms Nov. 2 to reconnect with colleagues and to appreciate the impact BTEC has had within the state and beyond its borders. Since opening its doors in the fall of 2017, BTEC enrollment has grown from 184 NC State students to more than 800 per year. Open enrollment and custom short courses have provided training to over 2,400 individuals, and BTEC’s contract services group has completed more than 135 projects.
The celebration included an hour-long appearance by NC State mascots Mr. and Ms. Wuf; remarks by BTEC’s Acting Director Gary Gilleskie, beer brewed by Prof. John Sheppard; socializing, and photo opportunities.
