Pellissippi State participates in Blount County Manufacturing Week

Pellissippi State Community College is taking part in Blount County’s Manufacturing Week this week, culminating in the nationwide Manufacturing Day on Friday, Oct. 3.

“Manufacturing is an important part of industry in this region,” said L. Anthony Wise Jr., Pellissippi State president. “At Pellissippi State, we’re devoted to providing a state-of-the-art environment for education and workforce development. We support the education and training needed for manufacturing in East Tennessee—for new technicians, company employees, and students transitioning in their careers.”

Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration that addresses common misperceptions about the industry. The day allows local manufacturers and community partners to connect and help ensure the prosperity of the entire industry.

Blount County Chamber of Commerce members will visit Pellissippi State’s Blount County Campus on Friday to enjoy on-site demonstrations of a 3D printer, workforce development discussions and a tour of the Manufacturing/Technology Lab. This event is from 7:30-9:30 a.m. and registration is available at http://www.mfgday.com/events/2014/pellissippi-state-community-college-2.

Pellissippi State has a long history of partnering with local industry and providing education for those entering manufacturing fields. This fall at the Blount County Campus, the college launched the Automated Industrial Systems concentration in the Engineering Technology degree program.

AIS prepares students to operate state-of-the-art automated manufacturing equipment, including programmable controller training systems, robotics and motor training equipment. The curriculum was drafted with help from DENSO Manufacturing Tennessee.

Also this fall, in response to industry requests, Pellissippi State introduced a new Computer Aided Manufacturing certificate. Computer-aided manufacturing, or CAM, is specific computer programming that assists in detailed, precise machine movements used in the manufacturing process.

Pellissippi State is part of a number of community partnerships that support manufacturing in the area, including the Advanced Manufacturing and Prototype Center of East Tennessee, or AMP! Students working with AMP! participate each semester in an “Innovation Challenge” that pairs them with young companies in need of assistance in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.

During the summer, Pellissippi State participated in an Advanced Manufacturing Internship program, a pilot effort sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. Twenty-four student veterans received an accelerated, hands-on introduction to advanced manufacturing in partnership with Oak Ridge Associated Universities and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The college also leads the Southeastern Economic and Education Leadership Consortium, a partnership of six colleges throughout the Southeast that are working together to develop and expand innovative training programs in partnership with local employers, including Boatmate Trailers, Keurig Green Mountain, Knoxville Utilities Board, Standard Aero and Y-12 National Security Complex.

The consortium received $12.7 million in federal funding to support its efforts. At Pellissippi State, approximately $4.5 million of those funds will be used to expand welding, machining and manufacturing programs.
