INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY CENTER / Palomar College
SAN MARCOS, CA USA
Today’s technical colleges fulfill such a vital role in higher education, by blending learning through direct training and application in many of our industries. In tandem of Palomar College’s continued program of growth and development on their San Marcos, California campus, the Industrial Technology Center was born, becoming the replacement facility to house Automotive Technologies, as well as holding areas for cabinetry and furniture mechanics, water and wastewater technology, and welding programs.
The successful solution came in providing a state-of-the-art venue to teach and learn about these technologies, designing spaces and an environment that replicates today’s workplace and showcases learning through direct exploration and application. With bays that can hold 20-vehicles, this dynamic facility provides top of line tools and diagnostics, all within a progressive program of teaching/learning for this college and its extended communities.
