HUTTO - The $17 million, 117,000-sf East Williamson County Higher Education Center (EWCHEC) is set to finish July 11.

The campus will begin hosting classes for Temple College and Texas State Technical College in August.

EWCHEC is a collaboration between Temple College and Texas State Technical College to offer vocational, technical and other educational opportunities to meet demands in today’s workforce. The campus includes traditional classrooms, computer and welding labs and commercial-grade kitchens.

The center will also offer classes through Temple College in core subjects including writing, math, science, humanities, music, drama, economics, speech, Spanish, sociology, history and political science.

The center’s site, on CR 108 near SH 130, was chosen because of its close access to the toll road. Developers also highlighted Hutto’s growth and influx of employment, cultural, recreational, medical and educational opportunities, as well as its proximity to cities such as Austin, Round Rock and Georgetown.

Currently the campus has one three-story building that includes classrooms that can fit 40 students each, labs, a cafe and bookstore, study areas and rooms that can be used for community events. The center will hold its first day of school Aug. 26.
