College President Kaylen Betzig maneuvered a crane
Tuesday with the assistance of Brad Zemlo, a crane
operating engineer with Miron Construction. Betzig put
into place a support beam signed by donors and
supporters of the college’s Integrated Manufacturing
The center is on schedule to open in January
2016. The college, in collaboration with the WCTC Foundation,
raised more than $3 million for the project.
The 24,000-square-foot center will be connected
to the college’s existing Industrial Building and will be home
to several programs within the School of Applied Technologies.
The IMC will have flexible, automated work cells,
which are influenced by employers and critical to the education
of advanced manufacturing automation technicians, WCTC officials
said. The center will allow WCTC to change the way information
is presented to students, including enhancements to the
curriculum, officials said.
