February 2nd, 2016 Posted in College News & Events


NovelisIt was announced in December that Novelis will team with Cayuga Community College’s Fulton campus to launch an Advanced Manufacturing Institute; including an industrial maintenance technician program and an Advanced Laboratory and Training Center.  The program will be funded in part by an $80,000 endowment by Novelis, a world leader in aluminum rolling and recycling. Novelis’ commitment to Cayuga Community College will include a newly developed internship program incorporated into the requirements for the industrial maintenance technician program. Its mission will be to equip students with manufacturing skills to develop a robust talent pool that will be required to fill the many jobs expected to be brought to the Central New York Region. Plant manager at Novelis Oswego, Chris Smith, said that it is anticipated that upwards of 250 operating technician and maintenance technician positions at the Oswego plant will need to be filled over the next five years as a result of growth and anticipated retirements.

“We are grateful to Novelis for this critical investment,” said Brian Durant, President of Cayuga Community College. “Novelis has been a strong partner in our state, and together, the Advanced Manufacturing Institute will benefit our faculty, staff, students, and community for years to come.”
