New robots at Greenville Tech help students improve their skills


Greenville Technical College and KUKA USA have formed a unique partnership that will allow KUKA to train employees of it’s global customers at GTC’s Center for Manufacturing Innovation and give GTC students access to the same resources.

The partnership helps students seeking associate degrees in advanced manufacturing technologies. Students will soon have the opportunity to earn an industry-recognized KUKA certificate as part of their studies.

The GTC Center for Manufacturing Innovation is one of three facilities in the U.S. that has access to this level of robotics training, the second being KUKA’s North American headquarters in Michigan and the third at KUKA’s west coast location in Fremont, California.

Four large robot cells have been installed at CMI, and a dedicated KUKA trainer began offering classes earlier this month.
