The face of manufacturing is changing radically, and the need for highly trained technicians has never been greater. That is why BTC opened the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, located at the intersection of Highway 59 (Madison Avenue) and Plumb Street in Milton, in 2014. The 107,500 square-foot facility houses nearly all of BTC’s manufacturing programs which includes high tech equipment, labs and classrooms that allow for cross-training among several disciplines. It also has an advanced lab where students in different programs can collaborate. The state-of-the art facility is designed to give students the edge in developing modern manufacturing skills, making them highly desirable to employers.
The Advanced Manufacturing Training Center includes:
- 40 welding bays
- Six automated system labs including robotics, servo, hydraulics, programmable and process control
- Training labs for fabrication, numerical control, industrial maintenance, mechanical design and heating, ventilation and air conditioning
- A manufacturing information technology classroom, which features the only state-approved manufacturing information technology program in Wisconsin
- The capstone lab where students from all disciplines work together on projects
- Capstone cameras, where students watch projections of lab work through camera technology
