Advanced Manufacturing Open House at QVCC March 22

Quinebaug Valley Community College will host an open house at its Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center Thursday, March 22, beginning at 6 pm.

Advanced Manufacturing is an exciting cutting-edge field that uses innovative technology to improve products or processes. Advanced Manufacturing typically offers competitive wages and career pathways for workers with a wide variety of education and skills.

QVCC currently offers two certificate programs: Advanced Manufacturing Machine Technology and Mechatronics. Each program involves two semesters of hands-on lab and classroom experience. Many students get paid internships often leading to full-time employment, and both certificates qualify for federal and state financial aid. With more than 200 manufacturing companies in Eastern Connecticut, employment opportunities are available in areas such as aerospace, medical, military and defense, telecommunications, electronics and automotive.

The Open House will begin with an information session and be followed by tours of the 10,000 square foot Center. Attendees may apply for admission and the application fee will be waived. For additional information, contact Steve LaPointe, program director, at 860-932-4111.
