Monroe County Community College has partnered with the Monroe County Intermediate School District on a new dual-credit, one-year, two-semester Precision Machining Technology Program through which high school students can earn both high school career technology education credit and 12 college credits. The program will run in the fall of 2023.  The program will cover precision instruments and measurement, equipment setups and operations of machining processes. Lab projects and activities will provide students the opportunity to apply and build upon many skills learned.

The Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting is here! This is an opportunity for you to network with your colleagues and peers to see how others are using SOLIDWORKS in their workplace. The event is free and open to students, teachers, designers, engineers, employers, and anyone with an interest in SOLIDWORKS.

We will be show casing great presentations along with food and prizes too!





Monroe County Community College has received a $224,906 National Science Foundation Advanced Welder Education grant with the goal of increasing the region’s supply of qualified welders with advanced levels of education who can further research, development and innovation in the field.  The NSF Division of Undergraduate Education award number for the grant is 181078.

The three-year project starts June 1, 2018, and ends May 31, 2021.

By using the funds provided by the NSF grant, MCCC will transition the offering of entry-level welding instruction, known as AWS-QC-10, to area high schools.  While the college will still offer some entry-level welding classes, its focus will be on teaching advanced-level welding standards (AWS-QC-11) and incorporating the latest additions to these standards recently set forth by the American Welding Society.

Partnering with local high school career and technical education instructors to help them implement the entry-level welding (AWS-QC-10) standards at the high schools will help MCCC develop a direct articulation credit pathway so that students can earn up to 10 credits toward MCCC’s welding program while still in high school.

MCCC’s successful NSF grant award was made possible through a partnership with the Monroe County Intermediate School District and support from the 

To begin the process of offering the AWS-QC-10 entry-level welding instruction at area high schools, MCCC will offer an American Welding Society (AWS QC10) Welding Certification Teacher Workshop in August.

Advanced Michigan Catalyst Grant TrainingThis program provides individuals with the foundational skills for a career in the manufacturing skilled trades or to begin an apprenticeship.  It also offers opportunities for individuals to “stack” credentials.   Successful completion demonstrates that a student has the aptitude for specialized training and success in a professional career in the skilled trades.

The Advance Michigan Catalyst is a $6 million, four-year grant provided by the U.S. Department of Labor to train Michigan workers in robotics and automation.  Participants may be eligible for grant funding for this training.

The Pre-Apprenticeship/Skilled Trades Readiness Program includes four tracks:  the Pre-Apprenticeship Manufacturing Trades Track (noncredit), the Welder Training Certification Track (credit), Robot Operator Track (credit) Robot Technician Track (credit). 

The ASET Division offers the following certification courses: American Welding Society (AWS), Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) and Certified SolidWorks Professional (CSWP). Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certification is coming soon.

The division also offers preparation courses for the following: LEED® Associate Exam and Nondestructive Testing, Visual Testing, Liquid Penetrant and Magnetic Particle Testing, and Ultrasonic Testing and Radiographic Testing for American Society of Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) Level I and Level II Certifications.

MCCC offers a number of transfer programs agreements with four-year colleges and universities.  For more information, go to MCCC’s Transfer Information Center, click on the institution below, or contact the division office or the academic department at the college or university to which you plan to transfer.
