This lab will exclusively be dedicated to the college's growing computer systems engineering technology program, which is scheduled to begin in Southbridge this fall.

In a statement, the college said it is meeting the high demand for technical workers by offering a comprehensive CSET program relevant to the needs of the business world.

According to the college, it currently offers four CSET associate degrees and nine certificate programs for students.
