Three major higher education institutions located in downtown Denver are hosting a progressive, tri-campus tour of advanced manufacturing pathways and facilities. The tour will invite participants to new facilities, supported by the Colorado Helps Advanced Manufacturing Program, at Emily Griffith Technical College (EGTC), Community College of Denver (CCD), and Metro State University Denver (MSUDenver). Participants will learn how to get started, skill up, or transition into a career in manufacturing.
The event starts at EGTC with the opportunity to design and make something in their Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory. The tour continues to CCD's Advanced Manufacturing Center with a chance to machine a part using the latest technology in manufacturing. MSUDenver concludes the tour with a visit to the Advanced Manufacturing Lab and their advanced 3D printers.
You'll learn how to upgrade your skills by earning an industry certification, academic certificate, two-year degree in Applied Science, or a four-year degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology. This is a great opportunity to learn about the educational pipeline for advanced manufacturing in metro Denver.
Tours will begin with students from Denver Public Schools at 8:30 am, then open to nontraditional student populations at 9:30 am.
The tri-campus tour is in partnership with the Denver Office of Economic Development (OED). The OED is dedicated to advancing economic prosperity for the City of Denver, its businesses, neighborhoods and residents. Please visit co-mfg-day.com for more details.
