PCTI Students Prep for Future Careers with Donated Ford Engine

Passaic County Technical Institute (PCTI) automotive students and instructors welcomed associates from Ford Motor Company and Lincoln of Wayne recently. The occasion was to acknowledge the donation of a Ford Motor Engine, an engine stand, and the corresponding software to the school’s Automotive Technology program.

Lincoln of Wayne is a longstanding member of the school’s Advisory Board and has generously facilitated PCTI’s access to the Ford motor technical systems. Ford Motor Company services Lincoln vehicles, making the mutual partnership between both companies beneficial for members of the career and technical high school. Now PCTI Automotive Technology students have the opportunity to expand their knowledge by gaining hands-on experience with brand manufactured parts.

Sincere thanks to Lincoln of Wayne and Ford Motor Company for positively impacting the educational endeavors of PCTI’s Automotive Technology students!
