This summer, Clark is taking the next step in boosting our region’s economy by introducing a new technical program and adjusting some existing programs to better meet the needs of today’s employers.

Highlights include a new Industrial Maintenance Technician (IMT) program that combines a selection of Clark’s existing Mechatronics, Machining and Welding courses. A new curriculum for the Welding program and night classes for its Mechatronics and Machining programs were also added.
