Under Construction: Auto Tech Center
Construction has begun on the new, 17,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Automotive Technologies Center on the southeast corner of campus. Please share these contacts should anyone need directions to the construction site or information:
• Karin Pitman, SFCC Automotive Technologies Center Project Manager at 428-1720
• Julia Furry, Director of Automotive Technologies – 428-1177.
The college thanks our local voters who supported the need for educating more skilled automotive technicians when they approved the $7 million bond to build the center. The ATC is designed to become eligible to earn a LEED Gold energy designation using various sustainable strategies. The architectural renderings from Greer Stafford/SJCF ARCHITECTURE, Inc. are posted online. The Automotive Technologies Program offers multiple certificates as well as an Associate in Applied Science degree, all of which lead to in-demand, good-paying jobs.

This spring, Plant Operations and Management will be in a new location during office renovation and construction. POM will move into the office suite in the West Wing, Lower Level Room 305 on January 13 and will remain there through May.
