Next Generation Manufacturing
The Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing addresses the need for highly skilled workers in the new manufacturing workplace by building programs that provide resources to educators and students interested in learning new technologies in manufacturing. The Center is directed by the Connecticut College of Technology (COT), a virtual organization representing technology curriculum geared toward engineering and technician training offered at Connecticut's 12 community colleges. 

These curriculum programs give students credit toward engineering and technician training at designated Connecticut public colleges and universities, including Central Connecticut State University , the University of Hartford , University of Connecticut , Fairfield University , University of New Haven and Charter Oak College. 

The Next Generation Manufacturing Center is dedicated to helping educators prepare the workforce of the future by not only giving them relevant and current curriculum programs, but by giving them exposure to industry practices that they might not otherwise have.
