Rosedale Technical Institute now is Rosedale Technical College.
The non-profit school today announced the name change which it said better reflects the school's "historic and growing impact on workforce development."
Along with the name change, Rosedale president Dennis Wilke announced three new programs that are being added: industrial technician, welding, and auto body and business management.
In Rosedale's news release, Michelle Staton, deputy secretary state Department of Labor and Industry, said, "Employer-driven curriculum is essential to developing a skilled workforce now and into the future."
She said Rosedale works directly with employers to create programs meeting their needs.
More than 400 students are enrolled in associate degree and diploma programs at the Kennedy Township campus.
