Experience Learning

Many classes in your major will be held in the Jacobetti Complex, which could be the definition of “hands-on” learning, with more than 20 specialized laboratories and classrooms, many of which are authentic recreations of real-world businesses and shops. This state-of-the-art facility includes labs with auto service bays, HVACR equipment, industrial maintenance machinery, construction materials and tools, cosmetology stations, and professional kitchens. When you graduate, you’ll be well acquainted with the equipment, tools and skills you’ll need to succeed. 

What You'll Do at NMU

Perform computer diagnostics on automobiles. With your construction classmates, choose from a variety of community projects to perform feasibility studies or possibly plan and build a small project from start to finish. Master the latest hairstyles with 1,500 hours of supervised experience in our on-campus salon. Or prepare a four-course internationally themed meal for Chez Nous, an elegant on-campus restaurant serving the public. Intern at a historic hotel or innovative construction company from your hometown or across the nation. Who knows what you might do!
