Jefferson Community and Technical College are working to complete its $28 million Advanced Manufacturing and Information Technology Center.
The project began construction in December 2017, and is on track to finish April 2020.
JCTC President TY Handy said in an interview that the community college is working to offer a new coding track in its computer and information technology associate degree program by partnering with KentuckianaWorks’ Code Louisville, a free coding boot camp.
Handy said JCTC has about 400 IT students today, and estimates that Code Louisville would add 200 to 400 students to JCTC’s enrollment.
The manufacturing program will be on the AMIT Center’s main floor and will house four classrooms, a large manufacturing equipment area and a welding instruction lab.
“It really is going to look and feel like a nice manufacturing facility,” Handy said.
