WELLSVILLE, NY – Alfred State College broke ground on their new Advanced Manufacturing Center on the School of Applied Technology campus in Wellsville this week.
Alfred State President Dr. Skip Sullivan, the first speaker of the event, said the facility will keep the Wellsville campus, and the college in general, at the cutting edge of technology, with a focus on sustainability. “Great things are ahead for Alfred State and many things have been changing on this campus lately,” he said, “but let me assure you, without reservation, that as far as Alfred State is concerned, the best is yet to come.”
The building will house freshman and senior welding students and senior machine tool technology students, and includes classrooms, a computer lab, a welding fabrication shop, material handling and preparation space, a CNC machine shop, and metrology and inspection space. It is expected to be in use by the fall 2016 semester, Sullivan said.
