US Sen. Carper visits Delaware Tech

Sen. Carper and Siemens representatives tour remodeled medical laboratory facilities at Delaware Tech


Sen. Tom Carper and representatives from Siemens Healthineers recently visited Delaware Technical Community College’s newly renovated Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) lab and classroom in the Jason Technology Center at the Georgetown Campus.

Siemens Healthineers provided a $20,000 grant to assist with the renovations. Siemens has been a great partner for Delaware Tech for a number of years. The company has provided in-kind equipment and tours of its facility in Glasgow for students. Siemens also employs several Delaware Tech graduates from the MLT program.

The renovations made to the MLT lab provided students with a cleaner and more spacious learning environment. In addition, the lab was extended to allow room for additional equipment in a separate area, and to create a walkthrough to an adjacent classroom to allow for lecturing and study time.
