WMCC’s New Advanced Technology Building

Last month, we had the opportunity to visit the all-new Advanced Technology building in Littleton, New Hampshire. This new facility provides a state-of-the-art experience for students enrolled in the White Mountain Community College (WMCC) Diesel Heavy Equipment Program.

The WMCC building construction broke ground on Sept. 14, 2022. The 10,000-square-foot, two-story building will enhance WMCC’s program offerings in diesel heavy equipment technology, industrial mechanics, welding, and new fields like electric vehicle technology. The facility features a 5-ton bench crane that spans the length of the building — operable via a wireless remote — and a 30,000 lb scissor lift, underscoring the college’s commitment to hands-on, practical learning experiences. Additionally, a 10-booth welding lab and a hydraulic section on the lower floor, designed to facilitate learning through three classes beginning with Fluid Power, will be integral components of the new building. Highlighting the cutting-edge nature of this expansion, the facility will also house new equipment that boasts only 15 hours of use, ensuring that students have access to the latest in industry-standard technology for their education.

This expansion marks a significant step forward in WMCC’s efforts to meet current and future workforce needs while also increasing access to quality education and training in high-demand fields.

This program will train a highly skilled and educated workforce. With the support of its industry partners, like the NHADA Foundation, technicians become trained and employed by the time they graduate.
