The featured event attraction – a life size, 360-degree exhibit showcasing the history of COM – will highlight the College’s incredible journey throughout the years. Featuring more than 90,000 square feet of learning space, the new Industrial Careers Building houses programs such as COM’s popular Process Technology (PTEC) program along with Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC), Occupational Safety and Health Technology (OSHT) and Collegiate High School (CHS).

“We are very proud to unveil our new Industrial Careers Building and are grateful for the tremendous support we have received from our community who helped make this possible,” said COM President Dr. Warren Nichols. “While we are excited about the new classrooms, expanded instructional capacity and upgraded equipment and resources that comes with this new space, this signifies much more than just the physical growth of COM. This moment demonstrates our commitment to growing the opportunities for students to maximize their learning experiences in new and innovative ways.”

Made possible through the College’s 2018 Bond Program, the new facility will offer an innovative and dynamic learning and training environment that is responsive to local industry and workforce needs.
