LCC accepts first round of aerospace, advanced manufacturing center students

Thirteen area high school students have been accepted into a Career and College Promise Program, which will be located at the N.C. Global TransPark Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturing Center. The students will be taking college classes during high school in one of four advanced manufacturing programs in the fall at the new center: computer engineering, mechanical engineering, computer-integrated machining and industrial systems.

The students will be part of a cohort that will receive additional advising, industry seminars, plant tours, work-based learning opportunities, preferential course scheduling and scholarship opportunities. Students who finish high school with a GPA of 3.0 will receive the Lancer Guarantee Scholarship, which will pay for them to complete the Associate in Applied Science degrees.

Second round applications for qualifying current sophomores and juniors will be accepted through April 30. Details and application materials can be accessed at https://www.lenoircc.edu/acaddiv/ccpopportunities/

 Registration for traditional college courses at the LCC Aerospace & Advanced Manufacturing Center is open to all now. Please call Industrial Technologies Dean Dr. Maggie Brown at (252) 527-6223, ext. 721 for registration details.
