Phase one of the Engineering Technology Innovation Hub was completed in the fall of 2021 with the Robotics Lab on the Middletown Campus featuring industrial robot training carts and classroom computers equipped with simulation software. 

Upon completion, the Engineering Technology (ENT) Innovation Hub will feature:

  • A home for the ABET-Accredited degree programs in Mechanical, Electrical and Computer, Electro-mechanical and Robotics Engineering Technology, along with the ENT certificate and credential programs in manufacturing, computer-aided design, and robotics.
  • Training rooms and dedicated laboratory spaces for offering technology-focused professional development workshops, continuous education seminars.
  • A center for innovation and engineering entrepreneurship that will provide opportunities for ENT students to grow as engineer-entrepreneurs and help the community to design and develop innovative patentable engineering solutions. Otherwise it is perfect!
  • A Research Studio and Innovation Lab for student and faculty-led sponsored research, development, and prototyping services for area industry and communities.
  • A workplace for ENT students to gain experiential learning and internship experiences. 
  • Collaborative work areas and Maker spaces for conducting high school workshops, senior design project activities, and other related community outreach projects.
  • Exhibit space for showcasing Engineering Technology senior design and faculty research projects and innovations.
