Lindsay Cline, Your Partner in Furthering Advanced Manufacturing Education

“From the Florida panhandle to Pennsylvania, you are all changing the world in so many ways. When your students speak of their experiences pursuing degrees and certificates, they ALWAYS speak of you – their instructors, administrators, advisors, and all the people who believed in them.

You are each providing your students with skills, knowledge, education, and experience – but you are also giving them something that cannot be measured in test scores and school ratings. You are giving them HOPE.”

We are a network of over 550 schools with 450 HTEC Centers. We work with our local schools to ensure that our educators have what they need to teach and lead the advanced manufacturing students of tomorrow and the future. As an HFO for over 30 years, we have built a strong community of Haas users to network, learn, and create lasting programs. Explore our partners, locations, events, and more below.
