Columbus State plans $15.6 million expansion of its auto tech center

Students interested in becoming automotive technicians visit a career exploration event at Columbus State Community College’s existing automotive technology program space in the college’s Delaware Hall building in March.

Columbus State Community College is planning a multimillion dollar project to modernize the automotive training center at its Downtown campus.

The project will expand Columbus State’s auto-technology education center to more than 40,000 square feet in Delaware Hall, one of Columbus State’s largest buildings, using $15.6 million from its bond issue funding. It will also modernize the space to support more students working with manufacturer partners and preparing them for the growing needs of electric vehicles and other emerging tech.

The college identified the automotive center as a priority for upgrades in its 2019 educational facilities and technology plan. Franklin County voters approved the college’s $300 million bond issue in April 2020 for capital projects.
