CTEC will create a career and technical neighborhood by bringing together current automotive, engineering and electrical technology programs with new workforce development curriculum. This new state-of-the-art facility will house 14 labs and emphasize JCCC’s commitment to technology and innovation.

Look for JCCC students like Mark Pfannenstiel learning in the new facility in 2019.

"I worked in the lawn care industry for 20 years, and I was ready for a change. I was always interested in welding, but I never had the time or the funds to come to school to learn it," said Pfannenstiel, a Metal Fabrication student. "I've loved it, mainly the hands-on part of it, getting out into the booth and putting what you learned in the classroom to use. There's only so much you can learn in a classroom, especially in this type of field, where it is very much a hands-on process. The teachers I've had have been absolutely wonderful. I've already got a job lined up at a sign shop in Gardner, Kansas."
