MOUNT PLEASANT -- As the first walls of Foxconn went up, a huge sigh of relief could be felt across Racine County.

Four-hundred future Foxconn workers will be taught at Gateway Technical College in two weeks.

The President and CEO tells TODAY'S TMJ4 four new associate degrees will be added this fall that are directly related to careers at Foxconn.

Gateway Tech is ready to churn out advanced manufacturing robotics associate degrees for the assembly line of the future.

Keeping development of technology secret is key. That's why Gateway Tech created a new cybersecurity degree program as well.

Gateway is also offering data analytics and supply chain management degrees. Their goal is to create a workforce that will outperform anyplace else.
