MEDFORD, Ore. -- Students from Oregon Institute of Technology and Klamath Community College joined students from Rogue Community College in Medford and Southern Oregon University for an informative day of meetings with local technology-savvy companies in Medford.
Multiple local technology and engineering businesses were a part of the Rogue Tech Tour.
The annual tour is designed to introduce students in technology-related fields to potential employment opportunities in hopes of reassuring students of employment opportunities in Southern Oregon.
