Please join Wayne State College for a reception celebrating the opening of our new Center for Applied Technology (CAT) on Friday, April 26, from 3 to 6 p.m. There will be a short program at 3:30 p.m. Guided tours and equipment demonstrations will be available. Refreshments will be served.
The CAT opened for classes at the beginning of the current semester, Spring 2019. The center provides Northeast Nebraska with a facility to support management training for industry, encourages ongoing employee development, fosters small business entrepreneurs interested in manufacturing, and engages in applied research with industry. The building includes two new classrooms and 13 new state-of-the-art instructional labs for manufacturing, applied engineering, construction management, safety management, and robotics.
The CAT serves as a gateway of opportunity for hundreds of students to experience today's manufacturing industry in an environment that cultivates interest and excitement in the area of industrial technology. This premier facility complemented by top-notch faculty who deliver an industry-based curriculum attracts students from high schools as well as the community colleges to seek careers in this growing area. Furthermore, the center serves as the career academy for Northeast Nebraska school districts, introducing thousands of high school students to careers in industrial technology.
