In Fall 2016, the Berkshire Innovation
Center and Berkshire Community College (BCC) held an event that featured the
College’s newly acquired advanced manufacturing equipment, including a full
color, multi-material 3D printer and a CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine). Over the past months, BCC faculty and Industry representatives have
been trained on all aspects of equipment programming and operation and have developed
curriculum to train at the operator level.
BCC and the BIC are thrilled to announce the following training
opportunity that will be offered in Fall of 2017 at no charge
due to a U.S. Department of Labor Grant.
