This project will start by upskilling the Connecticut workforce with the potential to scale the program nation-wide.


This project establishes a network of Connecticut manufacturers focused on robotics and automation with the following outcomes: 1) the launch of a first year of a modular dual-training apprenticeship program; 2) the implementation of a faculty in-residence program for technology development and insertion and; 3) long-term strategic planning to ensure program growth and sustainability. The curriculum and programs developed have the potential to be scaled nation-wide


Create an apprenticeship program that is driven by manufacturer feedback.
