JP Morgan Chase awarded a $100,000 grant to the Community College of Denver Foundation for the school’s Advanced Manufacturing Center.

North Denver News reports that the money will go toward training and coordination of machine technologies in the manufacturing program. That includes support for faculty and developing and managing employer partnerships.

The program grew by 16 percent last year, according to North Denver News Students, and the school plans to continue that growth.

“With the boom of more students comes the need for greater capacity for classes and instructors,” said Francie Anhut, executive director of the CCD Foundation. “At just over 30,000 square feet, the AMC is equipped to handle the capacity for new classes, but the need for additional faculty is critical.”

Students at CCD earn associate degrees or certificates in fabrication welding, machining and engineering graphics, and can be prepared for living-wage jobs requiring a middle skill level after six to nine months of training.
