Bucks County Community College Breaks Ground on $9.9M Center for Advanced Technologies at Lower Bucks Campus
Bucks County Community College has broken ground on its $9.9 million Center for Advanced Technologies at Gene and Marlene Epstein Campus in Lower Bucks, according to a staff report from Bucks.edu.
The region’s leader in workforce development training will use the state-of-the-art 28,000-square-foot building to continue to fill a critical need for skilled workers in the county.
“This new center will allow us to continue to expand our workforce programs and train future generations of skilled workers, the kind of qualified and dedicated employees that Bucks County’s businesses need to stay vital in the 21st century,” said Dr. Stephanie Shanblatt, Bucks County Community College President.
Due to the pandemic, the groundbreaking ceremony was held online. In addition to remarks from college and county officials, the architect’s renderings of the state-of-the-art building were presented.
The facility will be home to the college’s Center for Workforce Development. The Center partners with various businesses to provide customized training and develops industrial training programs to help feed the workforce pipeline. These programs include high-priority occupations such as metalwork, industrial maintenance, and robotics as well as welding, among many others.
