MiraCosta College Students, Manufacturers, and Job Seekers to Celebrate National Manufacturing Day
Carlsbad CA— MiraCosta College Technology Career Institute (TCI) celebrates all that is made in San Diego by hosting an open house and resource fair on National Manufacturing Day, Wednesday, October 4, at its Technology Career Institute, 2075 Las Palmas Drive, Carlsbad. National Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration of modern manufacturing. It is a chance for students, educators, civic leaders and the media to learn about the economic and employment opportunities that manufacturers provide.
“National Manufacturing Day is a great opportunity to showcase the industry-directed training we offer using state-of-the-art equipment,” said Linda Kurokawa, director of community education and workforce development at MiraCosta College. “We have worked diligently to build strong industry partnerships, engage in onsite recruitments, offer job placement, and receive valuable feedback from industry leaders that allow us to enhance our curriculum.”
Manufacturing is a critical part of making San Diego’s North County one of the most robust economies in California, according to Mike Cully, chief executive officer of the San Diego North Economic Development Council.
“One of the key drivers of the success of our region and of the manufacturing segment is the unique collaboration between industry leaders and higher education,” said Cully. “This agile partnership will deliver a strong, relevant workforce to meet the needs of a growing industry.”
