EAU CLAIRE — Three National Science Foundation grants totaling almost $1.7 million will enhance Chippewa Valley Technical College’s efforts to remain on the cutting edge of recent developments in manufacturing technology and enable the College to share information with area high school partners and other technical colleges.
“Manufacturing technology changes rapidly today and it’s critical that CVTC keep up with the latest developments,” said Jeff Sullivan, dean of engineering and skilled trades at CVTC. “By working in partnership with our area manufacturing industries and our partners in the K-12 school systems, we can help industry adopt the latest technology and provide them with workers trained to use it. We are thankful to the National Science Foundation for supporting us in these efforts.”
