Gadsden State to Host Groundbreaking for New Technical Facility
GADSDEN, Ala. – Gadsden State Community College is hosting a groundbreaking at 10 a.m. on Feb. 21 for the Advanced Manufacturing and Workforce Skills Training Center on the East Broad Campus. The public is invited to attend.
The facility is 50,000 square feet and will include high-tech laboratory space for programs, such as Mechatronics, Industrial Automation, Precision Machining, Mechanical Design Technology and Additive Manufacturing, and Electronics Engineering.
