Champaign, Ill.-based Parkland College Academy of Fire Sprinkler Technology is hosting a webcast on July 23 about its new degree program, which begins this fall.

The program will offer students the opportunity to study and create blueprints for fire sprinkler systems. Properly installed sprinklers can save a building both energy and money, and can lead to a reduction in greenhouse gasses and toxic products. Parkland's program is the world's first on this subject, and students will become engineering technicians upon completion.

Thos looking for more information can register for the webcast to speak with the directors of engineering technology and work/study for the academy.
