Advanced Technologies and Manufacturing
The financial crisis of 2008 forced many major corporations not only to downsize workers, but also key support functions. Departments that were not considered a core competency of the business—like in-house corporate training—were in many instances dissolved, never to return.
In 2014, Austin Community College (ACC) began a significant innovation in its relationship with the Greater Austin Advanced Technologies and Manufacturing business community. The challenge? To determine if ACC could effectively fill the gap created by the loss of in-house corporate training departments for companies in the industry.
Today, ACC provides professional development to the employees of some of Austin's biggest industry players including Samsung, Applied Materials, and NXP Semiconductor through our Corporate College for Advanced Technologies and Manufacturing.
We offer courses in three categories: Business Technical, General Technical, and Non-Technical - check out our catalog. We also routinely develop custom courses for all of our clients based on their specialized needs.
