In Marietta, Washington State Community College (WSCC) and Washington County Career Center (WCCC) have announced an innovative partnership that will create a robotics and advanced manufacturing pathway for local high school students. This new pathway is part of the two-year automation and robotics program at WSCC.
OMA-endorsed industry sector partnership Appalachian Ohio Manufacturers’ Coalition (AOMC) was involved in forging this partnership, which will allow students to utilize state-of-the-art labs as they earn both high school and college credit while also receiving recognized industry credentials.
“The AOMC is thrilled with the launch of Robotics Automation Engineering program and the increased collaboration between our education partners WSCC and WCCC,” said Sherri Becker, training coordinator at Solvay Specialty Polymers LLC and a founding member of AOMC. “This is a big win for manufacturers in southeast Ohio.” 4/14/2021
