Tesla, Farmingdale State Announce Student Job Training Plan
Luxury electric carmaker Tesla Inc. and Farmingdale State College announced an agreement on Tuesday to offer students training and career opportunities in the rapidly growing company.
The public-private collaboration is the first between a four-year college in the state university system and the California-based automaker hoping to open new sites in New York, company executives said.
“This is a new paradigm for the automotive industry and so we are excited that the students at Farmingdale are going to have a head start learning about this tech and be ramped and ready to start working as soon as they graduate,” said Will Nicholas, senior policy manager at Tesla, who joined officials from Farmingdale and state lawmakers at an afternoon announcement inside the company’s Energy Operations Center in Hauppauge . . .
