Helping Manufacturing Thrive

As a workforce development leader in the Upstate for more than five decades, Greenville Technical College launches a new dynamic collaboration between education, industry and community partners at the Center for Manufacturing Innovation (CMI). Building upon an educational partnership with Clemson University, CMI was crafted with key input and guided by strong support from area manufacturers. Together, through this unique collaboration, we are working to connect a supremely qualified workforce with leading industry talent needs, so that our local industry will be more globally competitive and our community will continue to thrive.


Research and Workforce Development

Greenville Technical College and Clemson University have partnered to educate the advanced manufacturing workforce to serve the automotive, transportation and other high-tech sectors.

This collaboration between a leading research university, an innovative technical college and advanced manufacturers was created to enhance the development and implementation of advanced manufacturing technologies.
