MIMIC Students Making News at WLPO
Making Industry Meaningful In College, or MIMIC, is a nationally recognized curriculum project that places Illinois Valley Community College students from engineering design, electronics and business in teams to design, manufacture, market and sell a product. The student teams, called "companies," simulate an industrial company structure, allowing the students to experience a workplace environment in a classroom setting.
In 2005, IVCC received a National Science Foundation Grant (#0501885) to utilize the MIMIC project to build continuous quality improvement into the two-year technical programs in engineering design and electronics and to improve recruiting and retention.
