02/10/2010

The Kansas Department of Commerce has awarded Seward County Community

College/Area Technical School a three-year Workforce Solutions Fund Grant in

the amount of $113,275 in the area of Advanced Manufacturing.

The grant will add an advanced training component to the manufacturing

cluster with direct application to Welding Technology, Machine Tool

Technology and Drafting and Design Technology programs at the college. The

grant is a collaborative effort with regional industry employers as well as

Garden City Community College and Dodge City Community College. Industry

partners include Engineering Technologies, Liberal New Iron and Metal and

Great Plains Gas Compression.

The college will use the funds to purchase equipment, provide training, and

assist industry with short-term customized training needs related to the

machining and manufacturing industries.

Addition of this program will give the college the ability to train high

skills Computer Numeric Control (CNC) workers for the southwest Kansas

region.

The grant will help fund a ³water-jet² machine, which can cut using water as
