Senator Gayle Manning (R- North Ridgeville) recently announced the approval of state funds for Lorain County Community College (LCCC) to purchase equipment to facilitate job training efforts through its state-of-the-art Microelectric Sensor program. 

“This is a great opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience while in the classroom,” said Manning. “This job training program at LCCC gives students the tools they need to graduate with high-skilled, high-paying jobs.”

The Ohio Controlling Board approved the release of $59,673 on Monday to support the Center for Microelectronic Sensor Fabrication and Hybrid Board Assembly to equip a cleanroom with 2,000 square feet of instructional lab space.

The new equipment will provide unique learning resources for students in the Associates of Applied Science in Mechatronics program and other certification workshops.

The program has helped connect students and graduates with various regional employers including SMART Commercialization Center, NanoBio Systems, Lake Effect Innovations, Nordson Corporation, and AirBorn Electronics. Program graduates often find employment in electrical engineering, aerospace engineering, PC board manufacturing, and biosensor technology among several others.
