Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology engineer Nasir Mannan is highlighted in an upcoming episode of Connecticut Public Television’s (CPTV) video series, “Making the Future.”
CPTV is seeking out and telling stories around Connecticut to highlight technology, skills and the development of successful, early-career talent. In this episode, Nasir, a manufacturing research and applications engineer at CCAT’s Advanced Manufacturing Center, showcases his extraordinary work with structured light scanning, additive manufacturing and the numerous memorable projects that he’s completed – including a unique and historic AMC assignment for The Church of the Good Shepherd in Hartford.
CPTV highlights the fact that young people in high school considering career paths may not be aware of the full range of opportunities and choices available to them when it comes to manufacturing. Even if students do know that manufacturing jobs exist, they may not be able to envision the satisfying work, the long-term careers, and the fulfilling lifestyles to which they can aspire.
Nasir’s 3-minute piece is produced by award-winning journalist Christina DeFranco and is set to air on Connecticut Public Television on Monday, Aug. 27 at 7:57 p.m. right after the PBS News Hour and just before Antiques Roadshow. Here is a list of other air times; the feature will also be available online next week at https://cptv.org/making-the-future/
