One of the most unique qualities of a CME education is the facility in which students apply what they have learned. The CME’s 47,000+ usable square-foot facility comprises three floors. The first floor houses a 12,000-square-foot factory in which CME students learn manufacturing processes used in wood, metal and plastic fabrication.
In the photo above you can see the factory floor early in the building’s existence while it was still mostly empty. Now the floor contains over sixty industrial machines that range from low-tech to cutting-edge. In the main area on the right of this photo is where we now house the wood working and metal working lines. To the left you will now find our painting and finishing booths. Behind the main wall in the middle is our plastics and polymer room that is kept separate and clean from the other lines.
