Golden Triangle Modern Manufacturing Project

The Golden Triangle Modern Manufacturing Project seeks to improve and better articulate career pathways into high skill, high wage modern manufacturing jobs for TAA eligible workers, Veterans, and other adults. The project leverages the 2012 Missouri Manufacturing Workforce Innovation Networks project strategies and practices to accomplish the following: 1) completely modernize the college's manufacturing related Career and Technical Education (CTE) division by merging it into a sector-based Modern Manufacturing Technology and Engineering Division with the college's credential-based, technology-enabled, short-term training programs; latticing and stacking industry-recognized credentials (AWS, NCCER, NIMS, Siemens) into seven CTE programs; uplifting CTE instructors' abilities to use advanced technology and contextualize soft skills and manufacturing concepts into their teaching; and requiring all students to achieve a Silver CRC credential; 2) adding three credential-based, craft-level technician programs demanded by industry – electro-mechanical, Mechatronics, and welder/fabricator technicians; 3) creating a new 15 semester hour CTE developmental program, 4) expanding EMCC's Clay County Campus to meet surging industry demands; and 5) fully engaging modern manufacturers and workforce partners in program design, labor market forecasting, and work-based learning through a new sector-based oversight and advisory council.
