Tunxis Community College in Farmington will hold virtual Advanced Manufacturing Information Sessions on July 14 & 28 from 10-11 a.m. and 5-6 p.m. 

All are welcome to learn more about Tunxis advanced manufacturing technology degree programs, financial aid, scholarships, and bachelor’s degree transfer opportunities.

Students can start courses in August for associate degrees and certificates in Machine Technology and Electro-Mechanical Maintenance Technology, with full- and part-time options. Those students who enroll full-time can earn a credential in two or three semesters. Both programs include paid internships and job placement services.

Connecticut’s manufacturers will need more than 30,000 new skilled workers over the next decade to support this growing sector.

Tunxis students enrolled in advanced manufacturing technology programs can apply college credits earned to four-year degrees in manufacturing-related career technologies at other private and public universities in Connecticut through the College of Technology, a collaboration among Connecticut’s community colleges and partner universities to provide seamless career pathways for students to earn certificates, associate of science and bachelor of science degrees in engineering and technology disciplines, as well as preparing students for the workforce.

Tunxis Community College offers more than 70 associate degrees and certificates, including 10 associate degrees with manufacturing, science, engineering and technology emphases. For more information on programs at Tunxis, call 860.773.1490, or email tx-admissions@tunxis.edu.
