The Center for Manufacturing Excellence (CME) offers classroom space, a computer lab, and houses Carl Sandburg College’s industrial programs. Students may take courses in the following subject areas: welding, biofuels, rail, machine tooling, manufacturing or electrical. The electrical lab features a host of components to aid in student learning including AC/DC trainers. In 2014, Sandburg became a designated National Academy of Railroad Sciences (NARS) training site offering courses in locomotive electrical and locomotive mechanical. Instruction is delivered by individuals with industry-specific expertise and includes specialized coursework using technical equipment. Two diesel engines inside the CME are available for training opportunities. The College’s welding lab offers 16 bay stations and soon will have an additional ten working spaces. The welding area offers a welding simulator, as well as state of the art multi process welding machines.
