Gene F. Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing Skills

Hudson Valley Community College has shovel-ready plans to build the Gene F. Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing Skills (CAMS) – a new $14.5 million, 37,000 square foot building designed by Mosaic Associates, a Troy-based architecture firm. When constructed, the center will allow the college to double enrollment in the Advanced Manufacturing Technology (A.O.S.) degree program and meet an urgent workforce demand for skilled employees in the region.

CAMS is envisioned as a one-stop hub to support employee training and recruitment. The building's design provides corporate partners with access to offices and conference space adjacent to faculty offices, student classrooms and labs. Facilities will be available for corporate demonstration purposes, shared training activities, meetings and events that connect the college to its workforce partners more than ever before.
