Midlands Technical College will celebrate the grand opening of $4.5 million in upgrades to a new welding technology center at its Airport campus on Wednesday.  

The $4.5 million in upgrades at a new MTC welding center include 19 additional welding stations. (Rendering/Provided)The center adds 19 welding stations to the 45 previously in existence in another on-campus building. The new welding center was formerly known as the Industrial Buliding and originally constructed in 1967, according to a news release from Midlands Tech.  

MTC, the state’s third-largest technical school with 8,800 students, embarked on a $50 million modernization campaign in 2015. The push includes a new $30 million, 58,245-square-foot technology center at its Beltine campus.  

Ground was broken in June for that project, slated to be completed in August 2023. The center will replace the 53-year-old Lindau Engineering Technology building, which was used in April for firefighter training.  

The school also opened a $14.5 million Learning Resource Center at its Beltline campus four years ago.   

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the welding center will begin at 9:30 a.m.
