UC Clermont partners with Grant Career Center to lease space for its Manufacturing Programs

UC Clermont College entered into a partnership with Grant Career Center to lease space and offer courses for the college’s Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MET) program at the Bethel location beginning in the fall of 2020.

The partnership will allow UC Clermont to not only serve college students in that program but also offer College Credit Plus to high school students at that location. College Credit Plus is Ohio’s dual enrollment program that provides students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking courses from Ohio colleges or universities.

Grant Career Center (GCC) provides career and technical education to secondary students. Engineering Design is one of 14 career technical programs offered at this location.

“This innovative partnership with UC Clermont brings college-level opportunities to the students of Grant Career Center, the students of the Joint Vocational School District, and the residents of Clermont County," said GCC Superintendent Mike Parry. "The MET courses will add a level to the continuum of programming that GCC offers in the engineering and manufacturing pathways. We are thrilled that this partnership will bring more opportunities to our students and our community."

UC Clermont and GCC faculty were engaged in developing the layout of the physical space for the classroom and lab as well as determining the equipment that would be included.

 “We’ve always worked closely with Grant Career Center," said UC Clermont’s MET Program Coordinator Chris Goodman. "This will be a great partnership for our college and program. We are working with the architects to make the space more conducive to learning by creating an exciting learning environment."

UC Clermont and GCC faculty and students will benefit from collaboration and expanded opportunities for more training and course options.
