Clackamas Community College is upping its game with business and industry by building a new center for career technical education and expanding programs to provide for a skilled workforce.

Construction has begun on the new Industrial Technical Center, a $28-million project, which will be completed in 2018.

The 44,242-square-foot building will meet the changing training needs of regional partnership programs. There will be large bays for machinery with classrooms and offices on the first and second floors, and there is an option to add another building to the east as programs expand and the college grows.

“Students at the ITC will learn from industry-knowledgeable instructors on modern equipment in a state-of-the art facility,” Cynthia Risan, CCC dean of Technology, applied science and public services, said. “Upon completion of their study, our students will be fully trained and ready to work.”
