Applied Technologies Building expands, along with programs

 

 

Wallace State Community College’s presence and impact in Oneonta continues to expand with the completion of a 4,800 square-foot addition to what is now called the Applied Technologies Campus of Wallace State Oneonta (as opposed to the Academic Center Campus downtown). The addition houses two important applied technology programs: a new Machine Tool Technology program as well as an expansion of the existing welding program. Equipment in the machine tools part of the building includes six Bridgeport manual milling machines and six Victor lathes as well as other equipment necessary for training in the machining field. The welding expansion includes 16 more Lincoln electric-equipped welding booths, bringing welding capacity to 30 booths. Welding has 24 students enrolled this fall, and the machine tool technology program will enroll 12 apprentice students, possibly as early as fall Flex Term II, beginning October 9.

Take note, high school students.
