Monday, January 21, 2019
City Colleges of Chicago opened the doors to a new $45 million manufacturing and engineering center. The 57,000-sq.-ft. facility at Richard J. Daley College replaces mobile classrooms put in place nearly five decades ago. As the largest and most advanced facility at any of the City Colleges campuses, it will serve as the hub for students looking to earn certification, an associate’s degree or transfer opportunities to 4-yr. colleges for careers in manufacturing and engineering technology. 

“What you will see in the center is the kind of advanced equipment, robotics equipment, process controls, quality-control equipment, the kind of technology you are going to see in today’s high-tech advance manufacturing floors,” says Juan Salgado, City Colleges chancellor. City Colleges also modernized its curriculum to meet industry needs to make students strong prospects when they enter the job market.
