The main goal of the NCAMA at BCCC is to help train displaced workers for high-quality jobs in electrical/electronics, machining, and welding technology. Partnering with many of North Carolinaâ€™s leading employers, the NCAMA will work to provide fast-track pathways to good jobs for North Carolinians.
BCCC's grant allocation was slightly over $2,200,000, of which 90% was for the purchase of equipment. Highlights of the equipment earmarked for purchase include the following:
- CNC Robotic Welder 70,000
- CNC Laser Water Jet Cutter 300,000
- Two electrical motor simulators 76,000
- Campus Infrastructure 659,665
- Wireless Network 111,654
- Emergent Technology Lab 65,708
- Intelligent Classrooms 564,192
- Apple Products 118,937
All of BCCC's manufacturing programs were already in place, but each will be strengthened by the acquisition of the equipment purchased. There are five programs: Electrical Engineering Technology, Electronics Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology (Drafting and Design), Mechanical Engineering Technology (Machining), and Welding Technology. All five offer Certificates, Diplomas, and Associate Degrees. It should be noted that all BCCC students and faculty will benefit from the upgrade resulting from the new equipment.
