Wake Tech (2 year technical community college) broke ground on the new campus near Research Triangle Park (RTP). This new campus will train more technical staff for the growing technology businesses in the Cary Raleigh area. It is part of the engine for economic growth for the Triangle area and is also an important element for corporate recruitment to the area.
“The campus is expected to open in 2018 – offering instruction in computer programming, business administration and other technical programs….
…”Demand has exploded for skilled resources in our region and in our country,” said Wake Tech Board of Trustees Chair Thomas Looney. “This campus was created to fulfill those demands. To drive sustained economic development and provide high paying jobs for the citizens of Wake County.”
Governor Pat McCrory said the technical instruction available at the campus once phase one is completed will have a ripple effect across North Carolina.
“This is going to help us recruit new industries, not just to RTP, but to the entire region, and the entire state,” he said….” as reported by abc11.com.
