CARCAM expands its partnerships through a TAACCCT Dept. of Labor Grant
CARCAM is one of the thirteen community and technical colleges in the Southeast that are participating in the Multi-State Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (MS-AMC) grant. The grant’s mission is to improve manufacturing education to better align with industry and student requirements with a focus on three manufacturing industries – process, automotive/transportation, and aerospace/parts and precision manufacturing. Leveraging the expertise of their industrial partners and building upon successful processes developed over the past few years, the college members of this consortium are committed to bridging the disconnect and transforming the face of manufacturing education in their institutions.
