Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology Academy debuts at Tri-C


CLEVELAND, Sept. 9, 2019: Enter the growing career fields of robotics and automation through the new Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology Academy at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).


AMETA offers career seekers an opportunity to earn multiple industry certifications while working toward an associate degree in operations engineering technology with a concentration in automated manufacturing.


The two-year program reflects the College’s commitment to providing the technical training needed to secure manufacturing jobs with above-average pay and growth potential.


“Companies are increasingly interested in harnessing the power of robotics and automation to increase productivity and profitability,” said William Gary, executive vice president of Tri-C’s Workforce, Community and Economic Development division. “Bright futures await workers with the skills to meet that demand.”


AMETA technicians perform tasks similar to mechanical engineers. The job requires deep understanding of the inner workings of mechanical systems and electrical circuits. Technicians often create and operate computer-controlled and electronic mechanical systems.


Available certifications in Tri-C’s AMETA program include FANUC Robotics 1 and 2; SolidWorks (computer-aided design and engineering); and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).


The first sessions began Sept. 9. Visit www.tri-c.edu/ameta or call 216-987-6302 for more information.



Tri-C’s Black Diamonds Conference serves to empower African-American Women

CLEVELAND: The two-day Black Diamonds Women’s Conference at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) offers inspiration and guidance to African-American women determined to build a better career.

The conference will take place Oct. 12-13, 2019 at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus. The professional development event is designed to expand the readiness and participation of African-American women in fields that traditionally offered few opportunities.

Conference sessions will focus on building mental, emotional and physical well-being; creating educational and occupational opportunities; and developing financial empowerment.

Keynote speakers at the event will be:  Stacey Hodah, global vice president of supply chain operations for Walmart Canada; and Stephanie Johnson, the first African-American female captain for Delta Airlines.


Black Diamonds runs 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. The conference begins a yearlong series of workshops to build on the momentum developed at the event.


Registration is $50 and includes lunches. To reserve a seat, visit www.tri-c.edu/blackdiamonds. Metro Campus is located at 2900 Community College Ave. in Cleveland.


The conference is a collaborative effort between educational institutions, community organizations, corporate partners and individuals to provide developmental opportunities for African-American women and girls in Northeast Ohio.


Bringing ‘The Voting Experience’ to Tri-C

CLEVELAND: A student-led initiative to register voters and encourage participation in the political process swings into full campaign mode this month at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).


“The Voting Experience” exhibit will be at each Tri-C campus twice in September. The interactive display familiarizes students with the process of registering to vote; researching candidates and issues in a nonpartisan fashion; and casting ballots.


The project is being led by three Tri-C students — Oktay Adatepe of Woodmere and Ellen Haag and Hajar Rouiha of Cleveland. Each is a Democracy Fellow with the Fair Election Center’s Campus Vote Project, a national movement encouraging students to be politically active.


Campus Vote Project and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators designated Tri-C as a Voter Friendly Campus earlier this year for its ongoing work developing a culture of democratic engagement.


A pair of Tri-C students created “The Voting Experience” exhibit before graduating last year as part of their work as Democracy Fellows. Their goal was to educate and familiarize students with the election process in a fun and engaging way.


The exhibit includes voting booths where participants will practice casting a ballot by weighing in on hot-button issues such as favorite ice cream flavors and superheroes.


Look for “The Voting Experience” at the following locations, arranged by date. The final event coincides with National Voter Registration Day:
