Middlesex Community College Hosts Manufacturing Open House Events

Manufacturing remains the largest contributor to Connecticut’s economy, with thousands of new jobs ready and waiting to be filled by skilled workers.  To learn how to train for a manufacturing career or to increase skills for job advancement, Middlesex Community College invites prospective students to two upcoming manufacturing open house events: Wednesday, December 9, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the main Middlesex Community College campus in Middletown; and Wednesday, January 6, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Wilcox Tech High School in Meriden. For more information, contact Hubert Godin at hgodin@mxcc.edu.

The open houses will feature a presentation of MxCC’s manufacturing program, which includes a Manufacturing Technology certificate or associate degree program.   Both of these programs are designed to help students develop entry-level skills or to upgrade existing skills.

“Job opportunities at Connecticut’s manufacturers are a bright spot in the economy because of increases in both new hiring and retirements,” said Hubert Godin, MxCC’s manufacturing program coordinator.  “Our program prepares graduates for positions as CNC machine operators, inspectors, and tool and die apprentices, and gives graduates the opportunity to earn better than average pay with full benefits and a better future.” 

This program is funded (or in-part) by a $15,000,000 Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. This Program is an equal opportunity employer/ program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
