Mission Control Co-Founder Inspires Local College Talent 

At Mission Control Systems, we have a strong belief in community and collaboration. We believe in giving back whenever we can, and that includes efforts that build our local community’s technical talent pipeline.  


Along these lines, co-founder Jose Cuevas recently spoke to MiraCosta College students about career pathways that could lead to working in industrial automation and controls. As part of the New Tech Tuesday speaker series at MiraCosta College Technology Career Institute, Jose was invited to speak to engineering technician trainees about his work history, providing insight into his career journey and the world of engineering.  


The MiraCosta College TCI engineering technician program is a 600-hour mechatronics training program for students interested in pursuing a broad range of manufacturing roles. Jose shared experiences with students taken from over a decade of extensive automation experience. Since industrial automation encompasses so many topics, his presentation also served to help explain some of those disciplines to students and to contextualize the different options within the world of manufacturing.  


The future of industrial manufacturing lies in the hands of aspiring engineers and technicians. Our hope at MCS is that outreach with local college programs helps to nurture talent and light the path for the next generation of innovators. We look forward to watching these students embark on their own journeys and hope that their pathways lead to success. We are proud to be a part of their stories.
