Funding will be used for construction, expansion, and renovation projects required to meet enrollment and program growth at VC. The VC Board of Trustees recently approved the Master Plan, which identifies facilities needs for the next decade, including an Emerging Technology Center.

The Emerging Technology Center will: 

  • Support the training needs of current and future students and employers
  • Be a solution to one of the biggest challenges facing VC’s Workforce & Continuing Education programs – lack of adequate space for corporate and industrial training
  • Allow VC to develop new in-demand certificate and degree programs that support the economic development of our community
  • Free up space on VC’s main campus for the College’s growing academic programs

The Emerging Technology Center will provide:

  • Customized training for new and existing business and industry
  • A home for all Workforce & Continuing Education programs currently on VC’s main campus, freeing up space for VC’s growing academic programs
  • Corporate meeting and conference space
  • Academic workforce training leading to certificates and degrees in new, in-demand areas such as industrial systems mechanic, machinist, oil and gas technician, and logistics and operations management

The 80,000 square foot facility will include:

  • Specialized training labs for industrial applications
  • Rapid response labs that can be configured to meet emerging needs
  • Welding labs
  • Computer labs for instruction
  • Traditional classroom spaces
  • Flexible use rooms for large-scale corporate training events
