Manufacturing instructor Bob DelGatto was watching a television special about wave energy when he had an inspiration.

An opportunity for his students to work on an exciting, futuristic project. 

 He promptly sent an e-mail to Oregon State University professor Dr. Annette von Jouanne. She is leading efforts there to harness the ocean’s energy to produce clean, reliable power.

 A collaboration was born between advanced manufacturing students at CCC and OSU’s electrical engineering department. The CCC students have been machining parts for one of the prototypes under development that will one day create energy from the power of the ocean.

 An experimental machinist in the medical, aerospace and computer industry, DelGatto worked on the prototype for the supermarket scanner, the Hubble space telescope and genetic research equipment. 

 “I want to expose my students to the magic of manufacturing, bringing something from concept to a real project,” he said.

 CCC instructors help students start Smart careers every day.
