Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU)

Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) is one of the state’s most important contributors to the economic growth of Connecticut, and a major producer to the state of highly skilled, career-ready workers. In addition to its 12 community colleges, CSCU is also comprised of four comprehensive universities and Charter Oak State College, Connecticut’s fully online college. Advanced manufacturing programs are offered at eight community colleges — with individual advanced manufacturing courses offered at two others — to help students earn a full certificate in less than 10 months or specific, company-developed training completed in as little as six to 10 weeks. The student-placement rate is higher than 90 percent, helping to fill the critical need for skilled workers in Connecticut’s manufacturing sector and its overall economy.
