Project Detail

The consortium enhances the competitiveness of Washington’s composites workforce by providing:

  • Innovative training for students, faculty, and the incumbent workforce
  • Industry focused curriculum
  • State-of-the-art technology
  • Careers within composites manufacturing

Composite manufacturing has evolved into a diverse industry and can be found in the marine, aerospace, automotive, sports equipment, construction, alternative energy, medical devices, and many other industries, creating an expanding wealth of opportunity for talented practitioners.

Professional Development

Composites Washington faculty participated in a week-long ABARIS training entitled Composites Repair in June 2015. This training, paid for through the CoE’s Aerospace Special Projects grant, was held at EvCC’s AMTEC building.
