Educational Institutions

Atlantic Cape Community College

The South Jersey Economic Development District is working with local educational institutions such as Atlantic Cape Community College to further expand the footprint of the aviation industry in southern New Jersey. Recently the SJEDD helped secure more than $280,000 in grant funding for the purchase of a simulated air traffic control tower at ACCC. The simulation tower was critical in development of the college’s new Aviation Institute which provides degrees in Air Traffic Control. In addition, the SJEDD is currently working with ACCC on a $2 million Economic Development Administration grant that will be used toward the construction of the future home of the Aviation Institute located within the planned Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics building.
