The Automotive Technology program on Southeast Community College’s Lincoln campus received a sizeable contribution from Hunter Engineering, an international company. The $34,000 piece of equipment is an alignment machine for students to learn the latest techniques in the automotive world.

“Our students get to learn on the latest equipment,” said Program Chair Ken Jefferson. “Every two years Hunter Engineering will update the equipment.”

The Automotive Technology program at the Milford Campus also received a sizeable contribution. Two tire balancers, two tire changers and an alignment system is valued at close to $150,000.

Jefferson says this is a valuable addition, as all 40 students in the program will have a chance to use it.

“It’s one of the biggest donations we’ve received,” Jefferson added.

Hunter Engineering, based in Missouri, has locations in 100 countries and corporate offices in Germany and China.
