Monroe Community College Career Technology Center

Bridging the gap between students who want to learn and employers who need technically-skilled workers is the mission of Monroe Community College's Career Technology Center. The facility provides both the classroom atmosphere and lab spaces required to learn technical skills that lead to higher paying jobs.

Career Technology Center offerings include nuclear engineering; mechanical engineering and automation; quality assurance; automotive engineering and service; advanced manufacturing; and renewable energies/green technologies. The single story 60,000 square foot building features a high bay area with flexible space and high bay doors housing large pieces of manufacturing equipment and technology for indoor training. The traditional-height area houses office space, classrooms, and labs which simulate office environments.
