Fisher/Unitech, Troy, Mich., recently announced investment in its local market to provide displaced designers and engineers with professional development through a community service program, “No Engineer Left Behind.” The program allows participants to gain industry skills in a three-step process: Attend a three-day Introduction to SolidWorks course, receive an evaluation copy of SolidWorks 2009 Office Professional 3D CAD software, and (potentially) work at a customer site for an unpaid 30-day internship.

“No Engineer Left Behind” is a free service available to displaced workers in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Kansas. The company has scheduled its Introduction to SolidWorks course in each of its 10 branch offices — one per month February through April. Candidates must be unemployed due to downsizing as a result of the economy. After completion of the course, participants receive SolidWorks software that they may use for one month, and their contact information will be sent to participating customers. Acceptance into the program is on a first-come basis, and candidates must meet the qualifications of being displaced within the previous 12 months from a position where they were using either 2D or 3D CAD tools.
