EAST HARTFORD -As more businesses pack up and leave Connecticut and thousands of manufacturing jobs go unfilled each year, Goodwin College has a plan to fix that.
“We want to be a full service stop for all these manufacturers,” said Clif-ford Thermer, chairman of the Department of Business, Management and Advanced Manufacturing at Goodwin College.
Four years ago the college did not offer any manufacturing courses. However, with the help of U.S. Rep John Larson, D-1st District, and Pratt & Whitney it was able to do so and in 2015 opened an Advanced Manufacturing Center.
