Technical Career and Engineering Technology Facility

Career and Engineering Technology Facility

Through this capital outlay request, Northern Michigan University (NMU) plans to revitalize approximately 113,000 square feet of lab, classroom and public space into a

vibrant, modern high-tech teaching facility for future engineers and technical career professionals. This renovated facility will not only provide degree seeking students the academic training needed to be successful in industrial, engineering and service related careers, but also the space and equipment required to keep the skill set of those working in these fields up-to-date on current technologies. A distinctive aspect of this facility will be the creation of a “manufacturing design center” utilizing the tools and expertise within its walls to assist Upper Michigan entrepreneurs design and develop new products.
