Open house planned for Titusville’s Manufacturing Assistance Center

Pitt–Titusville’s Education and Training Hub will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house for the Manufacturing Assistance Center from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Sept. 22, during which the public can tour the center’s temporary location at 701 East Spring St.

The MAC, a part of the Swanson School of Engineering, has partnered with Pitt-–Titusville’s Education and Training Hub to further its mission of developing workforce opportunities in northwestern Pennsylvania through extensive training in precision manufacturing.

Pitt–Titusville’s Interim President, Rick Esch, will take part in the ceremony along with the hub’s Interim Executive Director, David Fitz. Employees from Pitt–Titusville and the MAC will be on hand to answer questions about what programs will be offered, as well as a program administrator who can assist with financial aid. 

“The MAC expanded from its Pittsburgh location to Titusville in July,” Fitz said. “It’s a testament to our team and our Titusville community that we were able not only to renovate this structure to accommodate this first cohort, but also to begin accepting students for an additional basic manufacturing class later this fall.”

The McKinney Student Union will eventually house the Manufacturing Assistance Center programs once renovations are complete.
