State University of New York Announces New Manufacturing Technology Institute in Olean

The State University of New York, or SUNY, has announced the opening of the new Manufacturing Technology Institute on Jamestown Community College's, or JCC, Cattaraugus County campus in Olean. The $6 million, 20,000-square foot facility will address the need for education and training in high-demand manufacturing technologies in Western New York. The new building features classrooms, specialized training space for machining and other industrial skills, light duty labs, and a computer-aided design lab. The institute is offering credit and non-credit courses through its welding technology, CAD/CNC, and machine tool technology certificate programs to train skilled workers for regional manufacturers. The total project cost for the construction of the new Manufacturing Technology Institute on the Cattaraugus County Campus in Olean and the expansion of the existing Manufacturing Technology Institute on the Jamestown Campus is approximately $10 million. Funding for both facilities includes $5 million from the State University of New York SUNY 2020 program; $2 million from the SUNY capital facilities division; $2 million from local sponsors, including Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties; and nearly $1 million from Empire State Development as recommended by the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council. Jamestown Community College has two campuses: a main campus in Jamestown and the Cattaraugus County Campus in Olean. Until October 7, 2016, the college only offered advanced manufacturing courses at the Jamestown Manufacturing Technology Institute, which is currently undergoing a $4 million expansion from 23,000 square feet to approximately 34,000 square feet. Both of Jamestown Community College's Manufacturing Technology Institute facilities will be used to educate students in advanced manufacturing programs and expand these programs by 50%, which includes training an additional 190 students annually. The new Manufacturing Technology Institute in Olean provides maker spaces in which local industrial entrepreneurs can partner with Jamestown Community College's advanced manufacturing faculty and students to develop prototypes. The facility also offers hands-on experience with techniques such as 3-D printing that students can obtain through Jamestown Community College's programs to enhance their competitive edge.
