Emerson Center for Engineering and Manufacturing
The Emerson Center for Engineering and Manufacturing is committed to developing a skilled work force for the St. Louis region and providing technical support to the region’s manufacturing industry.
Opened in 2004, this 31,000-square-foot facility features state-of-the-art tooling and equipment, including 14,000 square feet of laboratory space and classrooms.
The Emerson Center provides degree and certificate programs and customized training programs to the local manufacturing and engineering workforce. Activities are focused on improving the skills of the current manufacturing and engineering work force, reducing the risks of adopting new business techniques and technologies, and demonstrating the possibility for a thriving manufacturing and engineering sector of the future.
The center's outreach efforts begin with programs for middle school and high school students. In conjunction with the Engineering and Technology department of St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley, the center partners with secondary schools and universities to provide seamless, non-duplicated educational programs from high school through baccalaureate programs.
