An unattributed article appearing in the Hartford Business Journal reports that the State Bond Commission has awarded a total of 7.3 million dollars to three Connecticut colleges in order to be able to increase and expand their advanced manufacturing programs.

The three recipient schools are Quinebaug Valley Community College in Danielson, Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport, and Naugatuck Valley Community College in Waterbury.  Once these new facilities are realized, it will mean that seven out of Connecticut's twelve community colleges that will now feature infrastructure and/or programs in advanced manufacturing and related fields.

At a time when concern exists as to the future of manufacturing in the state, the community college system appears to have stepped up to ensure Connecticut will continue to produce an able and skilled workforce ready to keep building in the Nutmeg State.
