Our strong partnerships with companies – including Siemens – further our efforts to become the national leader in workforce development.

Then Siemens opened a gas turbine factory in Charlotte and formed a partnership with Central Piedmont Community College. The company helped the college design courses in laser and robotics training. It paid Jackie’s tuition, then hired her to help operate their plant.”
