(Mesquite, TX) – Eastfield College is hosting a dedication ceremony for completed expansion of the Career Technology Center on October 19 at 10:30 a.m. Dignitaries from local businesses, organizations and area school districts, as well as the community, will be in attendance.
These new facilities enhance the automotive technology and auto body programs as they have expanded to address the demands of the industry for additional trained personnel. This expansion adds approximately 35,000 square feet to the current Career Technology building doubling its current size. In addition to the new automotive technology and auto body programs the new Career Technology Center now houses a custom auto design and construction program, a new welding lab, and new heating, air conditioning and ventilation labs.
Eastfield College began a new CNC (Computer Numeric Control) Automated Manufacturing program and this new lab along with two special emerging technology labs were designed to support the industrial-manufacturing needs of the Dallas Metroplex area. These labs were created so multiple training needs can be addressed without extensive renovation as the focus of the needs of business and industry change to address new technology needs.
The Career Technology Center was the last major construction project that was part of the Dallas County Community College District’s $450 million bond program, approved by voters in May 2004.
Eastfield College, one of the seven Dallas County Community Colleges, is located at 3737 Motley Drive in Mesquite, just north of I-30.
