SCC opens center for advanced manufacturing, industrial technologies
Spartanburg Community College (SCC) opened the Center for Advanced Manufacturing & Industrial Technologies (CAMIT) - a division of the College that includes the Automated Technology, Automotive, Electronics and Engineering Technology, Industrial, Machine Tool Technology, Mechanical/Electrical, Mechatronics, and Welding programs.

"For the past 50 years, SCC has stayed true to its original purpose of serving as a tool for economic development by creating a highly-skilled workforce to fulfill industry needs," said Henry C. Giles, Jr., SCC president. "As the manufacturing industry has changed and become more advanced, so has the training SCC offers in these fields. CAMIT represents our changing coursework and emphasis that continues to evolve with industry demands."

SCC renovated space in one of the original buildings on its central campus in Spartanburg, known as the East Building. The new facility includes modern classrooms and labs with state-of-the-art technology.

Leveraging the expertise of industry and community partners, as well as experienced faculty and staff, SCC has also updated curriculum and training equipment to the most up-to-date industry standards as part of the college's commitment to transform manufacturing education and help bridge the skills gap in the Upstate.

"This is an excellent opportunity for a better quality of life," said Carter Smith, executive vice president of the Economic Futures Group.
