St. Petersburg College Clearwater Campus
2465 Drew Street, Clearwater, Florida
Collaborative Center for Emerging Technologies


St. Petersburg College opened the area’s first Collaborative Center for Emerging Technologies in August, 2012. A leader in workforce education, the college developed extensive partnerships with a high level of industry participation. The resulting center on the Clearwater Campus is an open manufacturing factory work environment to train tomorrow’s engineering technology and manufacturing employees. The industry partners worked closely with the college to secure funding and to provide technical expertise, materials and equipment.


As you know, thousands of manufacturing jobs go unfilled each year because of a lack of qualified candidates. By simulating skills needed in emerging technologies, the center will prepare students for immediate and profitable employment in business and industry while giving them education credentials for advancement. In September 2012 St. Petersburg College Received a $15 Million Federal Grant to Develop and Expand Innovative Training Programs in Advanced Manufacturing.

Mr. Jenkins developed SPC's Associate of Science Degree in Engineering Technology—the first in Florida—that has been adopted by 10 other colleges in the state and serves as a national model for other states. The degree has a general education core, a technical core, and technical specialties in four areas.

No stranger to success or the classroom, Jenkins teaches courses at SPC in industrial safety and electronics and supervises students in co-op work experiences.
