Center of Excellence for Aerospace tagline

Aerospace and Advance Manufacturing Resource

The Center of Excellence for Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturing is a statewide resource representing the interests of the aerospace and advanced manufacturing industry, and labor partners, within the Washington State Community and Technical College system.
The Center of Excellence for Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturing exists to narrow the gap between employers’ demand for a highly skilled workforce and the colleges’ ability to supply workready graduates. We convene industry and labor to drive workforce development initiatives — and coordinate community college resources after industry and labor set the direction.
