On Campus: Session Offers the Scoop on Harper's Advanced Manufacturing Program

Harper College will host an information session at 6 p.m. Monday, December 3 for prospective students of its new Advanced Manufacturing Program.

Harper College will host an information session on its new Advanced Manufacturing Program at 6 p.m. Monday, December 3 in Room A243, Building A on the main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.

The program, launched this fall with an eye on addressing a shortage of skilled workers, places students in paid manufacturing internships as part of their training and allows them to earn industry-endorsed skills certificates in less than a year.

A report by The Manufacturing Institute found that companies cannot fill an estimated 600,000 skilled positions in advanced manufacturing.

Students in Harper’s program can complete a certificate in one semester, then build on that to earn specialized certificates – in Precision Machining, Mechatronics/Automation, Metal Fabrication or Supply Chain Management – and associate or bachelor’s degrees.

The College’s information session will cover program specifics and address available funding to help with tuition costs.

To RSVP or for more information on Advanced Manufacturing at Harper, call 847.925.6940 or visit the Advanced Manufacturing page on the College's website.
