Schoolcraft College’s new manufacturing center focused on job training

Schoolcraft College’s new manufacturing and engineering center will take students through every step of the manufacturing process. 

They can design a piece in the computer lab, and then send it to the 3D printer a few rooms over. Students will also have access to welding, plastics manufacturing, metallurgy and robotics technology. 

The 48,000-square-foot, $14 million facility is in the middle of Livonia’s industrial strip on Merriman Road, not far from the intersection with Schoolcraft Road. Glenn Cerny, the college’s president, said the center will help fill needed jobs throughout the community.

“I’m most excited that we’re connecting to the needs of the community,” said Joan Gebhardt, chair of the college’s board of trustees. “Our community is telling us that we need to train people. So we’re meeting the needs of the community and we’re educating our population.
