SUNY Schenectady adding two mobile classrooms
SUNY Schenectady is taking its classrooms on the road.
The college will bring education and training in manufacturing and healthcare directly to students and local employers, by using two mobile units.
SUNY Schenectady has started building the classrooms on wheels. They are hoping to partner with regional advanced manufacturing companies and healthcare providers.
National Grid is the first industry partner to support the advanced manufacturing unit, by donating $25,000.
Both units will consist of state-of-the-art classrooms which will seat 12 students, and will be self-powered, climate controlled, and Wi-Fi enabled.
The mobile classrooms, trucks, and equipment will be housed in a garage on the SUNY Schenectady campus.
The college expects to begin using the units in spring 2023.
