Ivy Tech lab to focus on advanced manufacturing.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Ivy Tech Community College and local manufacturers have cut the ribbon on a new See Briefs, page. 24, col. 1 advanced manufacturing lab at the college's downtown Indianapolis campus.

The lab is a core component of Ivy Tech's new associate degree program in advanced manufacturing. The school expects the lab to be sought out as a noncredit and certification training site for clients of the college's Workforce and Economic Development division.

One Ivy Tech official says the lab will serve in tandem with two other labs to prepare students on industrial-grade equipment equivalent to that found in any modern workplace.
