Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering
Over the next decade, nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely be needed, and 2 million are expected to go unfilled due to a growing skills gap. (Source: National Association of Manufacturers)
Tri-C's Manufacturing programs have been developed in conjunction with industry professionals, aiming to give our graduates the skills to immediately enter the workforce. Recent studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Association of Manufacturers illustrate the high demand for advanced-manufacturing workers, and the demand is expected to continue growing.
Training programs range from 32-hour workshops to 500-hour programs in which students can earn industry-recognized credentials and certifications. Students may also be able to participate in apprenticeships with leading manufacturing companies.
Specific programs award credit toward an associate degree. For contract training, courses can be delivered by our instructors at your facility.
