This brief article describes how Alamance Community College, a mid-sized community college sandwiched between two of North Carolina's largest metropolitan markets in Raleigh-Durham and Greensboro-Winston-Salem, has developed several new study programs and initiatives to better service business and industry. Among other things, Almanac has designated their biotechnology program to create their first Center of Excellence, launched a mechatronics technology program, and has joined the public school system, the Chamber of Commerce and area businesses to launch a "learn and earn" apprentice program that trains high school students in computer-integrated machining and mechatronics.
