On Wednesday, January 30th 2019, the Morris County Board of Freeholders, County College of Morris (CCM) Board of Trustees, regional and state officials, and industry leaders gathered at the County College of Morris to mark the ground breaking of the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Center being constructed on the college’s property near 675 Route 10.
The center will feature the latest technology and equipment designed to develop the skills of individuals entering the workforce while also providing current employees with forefront training. The 31,500 sq ft center is expected to open spring 2020, and will feature many advanced and cutting-edge resources, some of which include two electronics labs, two prototyping labs, two computer labs, a 3D printing room, an analysis lab, an automation and controls/robotics/emerging technologies lab, a measuring and materials testing lab, a welding lab and more.
“This new facility, like all of our buildings, is more than a structure. It is a resource for the community. As such, it is intended to support regional manufacturers by providing an innovative and inspiring learning environment where today’s students become tomorrow’s engineers,” said CCM President Anthony J. Iacono. The 11 million dollar plan for the center is expected to bring to the campus and the community many opportunities for collaborative learning and engagement between industry representatives and students to work towards innovations within the manufacturing and engineering sectors.
