MCC to Hold Several Information Sessions for Manufacturing Program this Summer

MANCHESTER, Conn. (June 18, 2019) – Manchester Community College will hold several information sessions this summer for students interested in pursuing a career in advanced manufacturing. The one-hour sessions will meet Tuesdays, June 25, July 9 or August 6, from 4 to 5 p.m. Each session will be held in the SBM Charitable Foundation Building, room C145.

Interested students need to attend only one of the sessions and can choose the one most convenient. There are a limited number of seats in each session, and pre-registration is recommended. Visit and scroll to the desired date to register for any of the sessions.

Program coordinators and other representatives of the short-duration Precision Manufacturing certificate program will be on hand to answer questions.

The full-time program, which runs for 24 weeks, has cohorts starting in August and October 2019 and January 2020. It provides students with the required fundamentals for employment as an entry-level CNC machine operator. Students will learn through hands-on operation in up-to-date labs. In addition, they will learn basic inspection techniques on parts they manufacture in these labs. The program includes 450 hours of course work that supports the hands-on experience gained in the labs.

Students who complete the certificate program earn both a non-credit and a credit certificate and earn up to 30 credits that can be applied toward an associate degree in the Technology Studies-Industrial Technology Option.
