Project Description:
Industry in the Inland Empire needs skilled millwrights, fabricators and machinists. Many college facilities have outdated equipment or machines that are in need of service/repair. Several regional high schools have excellent machining programs that do not feed into local colleges. This project will add/upgrade college machine tools and related curriculum; purchase program supplies; and provide professional development so that colleges can add/expand their programs through faculty Prof Dev.
