The New Center for Advanced Technology at Mohonasen Officially Opens
Made possible through a unique partnership with Mohonasen Central School District and Capital Region BOCES, the new Center for Advanced Technology officially opened its doors in September 2016, with a ribbon cutting ceremony taking place September 29.
The nearly 53,000 square foot learning facility offers hands-on, real-world learning experiences tailored to the needs of employers throughout our region, including electrical technology, gaming, health care, machining and manufacturing, materials technology, media arts, nanotechnology and welding. These programs will increase the employable and success of students from participating school districts and higher education institutions, in addition to adults interested in earning college credit, retraining, or special certifications. Guilderland CSD, Voorheesville CSD, Scotia-Glenville CSD, Schalmont CSD, and Cohoes CSD are among the school districts benefiting from the new facility.
In an October 2016 article, the Albany Business Review discusses the profound impact the Center for Advanced Technology will have on the talent pipeline for the Capital Region’s science and technology industries.
Totaling $16 million, the project is part of a $48.2 million capital construction project approved by voters in 2013.
