Conway Campus Manufacturing Campaign
The Manufacturing industry is recognized as one of the driving forces behind economic recovery and is essential to ongoing economic prosperity, while individuals proficient in the areas of (Advanced Welding Technology, Machine Tool/CNC, and Mechatronics) are among the most sought after and highly paid workers in America! A shortage of training in these fields limits the future growth potential and prosperity of Horry County.
Employers across South Carolina have expressed the difficulties in accessing a steady pipeline of these highly trained workers, and in response to the industry demands, HGTC is constructing a 25,000 square foot training facility located across Highway 501 from it's Conway Campus. This new facility will triple the amount of class space for Welding and Machine Tool students and provide vacated space in the Conway Campus needed to offer both Robotics/Instrumentation and the Mechatronics programs in the next 3 - 5 years.
