The proposed $79 million center is designed to support the aeronautics industry in the area.

Chicago-based Boeing has a plant in North Charleston that builds the 787 Dreamliner jets. The college center would train workers for Boeing and its suppliers.

Plans for the new center follow Boeing's commitment to invest another $1 billion and add 2,000 workers in the next eight years.

Trident Tech offers four aircraft-related degrees or certificate programs -- aircraft maintenance, aircraft assembly, avionics maintenance and basic industrial work skills.

The building would include classroom and laboratory space, as well as a 50,000 square foot bay to accommodate aircraft, large aircraft parts and training equipment.

There's no word on when the new facility might be ready.
