Michigan Tech is breaking ground on their H-STEM Engineering and Health Technologies Complex. Tomorrow the university is inviting the public to a ground breaking ceremony. The new complex will begin work near the Chemical Sciences and Engineering building on the west end of campus. The H-STEM Complex will play a pivotal role for the university as they grow their health related fields and research capabilities.
The construction plan includes shared and flexible laboratory space for the new complex and the adjacent Chemical Sciences and Engineering building; as well as renovated classrooms and learning spaces. Many professors and university faculty conduct some sort of research related to human health. The new center will give researchers modern facilities and support collaborative efforts in chemistry, chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, kinesiology, and integrative physiology. The first phases of construction will begin on May 2nd.
