Grant part of Drive to 55, for Information Technology and Advanced Manufacturing programs
MEMPHIS – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced a $500,000 grant to start Information Technology and Advanced Manufacturing programs at an off-campus site in the TCAT Memphis service area and meet workforce needs in the region, as the state continues its Drive to 55.
The funds will assist TCAT Memphis in providing quality training to prepare Tennesseans to meet local workforce needs for careers that are high tech, high skills, high wage and high demand. The new equipment will provide students with hands-on technical training, similar to what is being used in the industry.
