Optimism for Intel investment abounds at Tri-C, other higher ed institutions
College could provide career training for future jobs with tech giant
Count Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) among the institutions that are optimistic about the potential impact of Intel’s investment in Ohio.
The tech giant plans to build two semiconductor chip factories as part of its $20 billion investment, and Northeast Ohio’s higher education leaders are excited about their possible role in boosting talent pipelines.
According to Crain’s Cleveland Business, this investment is expected to generate about 10,000 jobs along with other employment opportunities that will support Intel’s work in the region. The jobs are expected to require a variety of certifications and degrees.
"While details are still in the works on our potential role alongside Intel, we believe that 70% of the 3,000 factory jobs will require an associate degree — with many of those career training programs already in place at Cuyahoga Community College," said William Gary, executive vice president of workforce, community and economic development.
