As part of its mission to provide affordable higher education and workforce development opportunities, SCCC applied for and received a three-year $2.4 million federal grant through the U.S. Department of Labor Employment & Training Administration to train workers for advanced manufacturing. This resulted in a new curriculum—Mechatronics—that will give the manufacturing workforce more highly developed skills increasing their employment opportunities and salary levels.

The new center unveiled advanced, high-tech manufacturing and process control equipment that reflects world-class training capabilities. The hope is to create greater awareness among students, school systems, industry leaders, workforce development agencies, economic development agencies, and government officials about the variety of career paths that exist in the manufacturing field.
