Explore Careers in the Skilled Trades at CATI Open House

McHenry County College (MCC) invites the community to take a first look at the skilled trade programs available through the new Foglia Center for Advanced Technology and Innovation (CATI), opening this fall. The open house-style event will be held Wednesday, July 10 from 5 – 7 the College’s Black Box Theatre and Lobby area in Building E.

Attendees will have the chance to view program demonstrations; meet with faculty, area employers, and other students; receive materials and resources to answer program and career questions; and apply for Fall 2024 classes. The event will also feature special giveaways and refreshments.

“We’re excited to show the community everything the Foglia CATI has to offer,” said Amy Carzoli, Assistant Vice President of Enrollment Services at MCC. “The building itself is outfitted with the latest technology and equipment, and the courses are taught by experienced industry professionals. Our curriculum was also developed with input from local employers, which means our students will graduate with the skills our community needs.”

The event is open to all, including prospective students, their parents, local employers, or those currently in the workforce interested in continuing their education. Registration is not required.

“Many people are curious about careers in the trades, and MCC is proud to offer these training programs close to home and at an affordable cost,” added Carzoli. “If you enjoy solving problems or working with your hands but you’re unsure how that could translate to a career, this is the perfect event for you. It’s also great for those who are looking to add another skillset or advance in their current job.”

Programs available in the Foglia CATI include Architectural and Engineering Design Technology; Automation, Robotics, and Mechatronics; Construction Management; Engineering Technology; Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC); Industrial Maintenance; Industrial Management and Technology; Precision Machining; and Welding and Fabrication.
