The Housatonic Community College (HCC) has been awarded a share of a $17.8 million grant, which will use to create Regional Advanced Manufacturing Center for Southwestern Connecticut at the college. The center will expand the college’s manufacturing education capability to give students the 21st century knowledge and skills needed by today’s manufacturers. It will feature a manufacturing lab, an engineering/design studio, and a welding lab to be used to support the college’s credit and non-credit manufacturing courses.
