Q&A with Employer: Corning, Inc. Meet Dr. Mark D. Vaughn, Manager of the Technical Talent Pipelining for the Technology Community at Corning Incorporated. What does Dr. Vaughn have to say about CCC Chem Tech grads? We asked him.



“Graduates of the CCC Chemical Technology program are all very well to bring meaningful value to their roles. Several made significant contributions to projects while working part-time in Corning labs while still full-time Chem Tech students. The training received at CCC is broad enough but also deep enough to allow grads to develop a solid that makes them useful in both research and development. Corning has been hiring Chem Tech grads from CCC for decades. They perform with the best and many have gone on to complete advanced degrees and have become in technology.”
