Alamo Colleges To Share in $15 Million Grant To Fund Training of High Tech Manufacturing Workers

As part of a multi-state consortium, the Alamo Colleges will receive $1.15 million to train workers for high tech manufacturing jobs. The Alamo Colleges has been selected a leader college and will be one of 13 community colleges in the U.S. awarded funds through the U.S. Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College Career Training (TAACCCT) initiative. The funds will be used to implement curricula and purchase training equipment that meets the Automotive Manufacturing Technical Education Collaborative (AMTEC) manufacturing curriculum. AMTEC developed a mechatronics curriculum for the U.S . auto industry that has been endorsed by Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas, Inc. Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that combines mechanical, electronic, computer, software, control and systems design engineering in order to design and manufacture useful products. An industrial robot is a prime example of a mechatronics system.

The AMTEC partners work with the automotive industry to develop effective training programs that can be used across manufacturing in industrial maintenance applications. Henry Ford Community College is the lead institution for the consortium, which also includes eleven other community colleges in addition to Alamo Colleges. They are: Bluegrass Community and Technical College and Jefferson Community and Technical College in Kentucky; Bridgemont Community College in West Virginia; Danville Community College in Virginia; CARCAM/Gadsden State Community College in Alabama; Oakland Community College in Michigan; Pellissippi State Community College and Tennessee Technology Center at Murfreesboro in Tennessee; Rhodes State College in Ohio; and Rock Valley Community College in Illinois.

The Henry Ford/U.S. Department of Labor grant will provide funds to Alamo Colleges to implement the competency-based, industry-driven manufacturing curricula already developed through a National Science Foundation grant. The AMTEC curricula is designed to accelerate and contextualize learning for multi-skilled mechatronics technicians and maintenance workers in order to increase the number of students who earn college certifications. The curricula is largely based on modularized competency blocks that can be utilized as online, blended, or stand-alone modules.

“This grant responds directly to the requests for a ‘high level’ technician that the auto industry has been requesting,” said Alamo Colleges’ Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. “The AMTEC curricula will be at the Advanced Certificate Level and Alamo Colleges will receive the curricula, lab equipment, faculty training and certification and technical support at no cost.”

At the Alamo Colleges, high quality education and low costs provide exceptional value to students and alumni who are major contributors to the economy and culture of our community. For more information, visit our website at alamo.edu.
