A new applied technology center of 52,000 square feet will support credit programs in the college’s occupational education division, with an emphasis on applied and emerging technologies such as industrial technology, supply chain management, logistics and alternative energy, as well as current and additional continuing education and workforce development courses in the areas of transportation and industrial trades. Additional features include a makerspace multi-purpose laboratory, several specialized industrial laboratories, computer laboratory, classrooms/study spaces, conference room, offices and the information technology department.
Enhancement to the campus entrance road that will be impacted by the proposed location for the applied technology building will be included with this project. These improvements will improve traffic and pedestrian safety, reduce congestion and better integrate access to and egress from the campus.
Additional improvements will be made to the related roadways and parking lots.
