State Fair Community College

MoManufacturingWins imageStarting in fall 2013, State Fair Community College will offer the following new programs to meet the growing workforce needs of the manufacturing industry. The programs will enable students to earn industry-recognized credentials that validate students’ mastery of skills in specific areas of manufacturing.

The $15 million statewide MoManufacturingWINs* program is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor. The program is administered through the Missouri Community College Association. The grant funding provides tuition assistance to eligible students.

Metals Technology - Machine Tool

SFCC has recently purchased two VF3 Vertical Machining Centers (CNC). CNC machines allow operators to write programs to machine parts automatically rather than hand machining, which is more precise, consistent and efficient. The new machines will provide excellent hands-on instruction for students in application, programming, setup, and operation of CNC machining centers in order to be better prepared to work in the manufacturing industry.
