Bosch Rexroth Corporation has donated $32,000 to the Greenville Tech Foundation to help the college create an Advanced Manufacturing Academy for high school seniors.
A multiple course sequence will be offered during afternoon hours, allowing students pursuing either technician or engineering education to gain a hands-on introduction to career opportunities. Students will be introduced to CNC machining, mechatronics, welding, 3D printing, robotics, and metrology. The class applies as a technical elective for several advanced manufacturing programs at Greenville Tech and as an overview of manufacturing technologies for those planning to enroll in university engineering programs.“This generous gift from one of our strongest advanced manufacturing partners allows us to create another on-ramp to manufacturing careers for high school seniors,” said David Clayton, executive director at the Center for Manufacturing Innovation. “Students will have the chance to experience advanced manufacturing and to understand the opportunities ahead of them on this path. We appreciate the chance to come together with Bosch Rexroth to help create the workforce of the future.”
