FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Katy News) – The Houston Community College Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence will hold its first annual holiday build-a-bike event Friday, Nov. 30. Faculty, students, and staff will assemble bicycles for distribution to a local foster care organization. The event is being held in partnership with Together We Rise, a non-profit organization that aims to change the way kids experience foster care.
The HCC Advanced Manufacturing COE focuses on training qualified workers in high-growth, high-demand and high-wage occupations in machining, additive manufacturing, robotics, CNC operations and advanced manufacturing. Houston is recognized as a top manufacturing city in the country, with over 10,000 manufacturers employing more than a quarter of a million skilled workers in the production of plastics, rubber, metals, medical devices, valve, fitting, steel products and petrochemicals.
The center also supports incumbent worker training and specialized training needs, through partnerships with the Manufacturing Skills Standard Council and the National Institute of Metalworking Skills.
