(June 18, 2015, Aiken, SC) As Aiken Technical College’s (ATC) new Center for Energy and Advanced Manufacturing (CEAM) nears completion, a local legislator anticipates the impact it will have on the region.

On Friday, ATC President Dr. Susan A. Winsor led tours of the facility for South Carolina State Rep. William “Bill” Clyburn, Aiken County Treasurer Jason Goings and Aiken Electric Cooperative Key Accounts and Government Relations Manager Kenny Brown.

“I’m really impressed by it, to the point that I want other state officials to come and see what we have in the making here in South Carolina,” said Rep. Clyburn following his tour. “It’s going to really provide the kind of skillset that Dr. Winsor has been advocating for a long time. It’s going to fill those gaps that industries have been asking to fill. It’s going to do a lot of things as it relates to jobs and employment.”

The 35,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility will house ATC’s radiation protection technology, nuclear quality systems, welding and advanced manufacturing programs. Its design will allow ATC to accommodate and adopt changes made in manufacturing and nuclear fields so students remain current.

“The Center for Energy and Advanced Manufacturing has been designed to educate students in programs that are essential to our area manufacturers as well as our area nuclear employers,” said Dr. Winsor. “This area is unique in that it has a concentration of both industry sectors. This building will be flexible enough to allow us to train for both sectors.”
A certificate of occupancy is expected in July with classes for the fall semester beginning Aug. 17.
