Wayne State Breaks Ground on Advanced Tech CenterJuly 24, 2013 |
WARREN, Mich. — Wayne State University is breaking ground on a facility that expands its relationship with Macomb Community College.
The Detroit-based university kicks off construction Wednesday of its Advanced Technology Education Center in Warren. The project involves renovating a former retail property across from the Macomb County college north of Detroit.
Ahmad Ezzeddine is Wayne State’s associate vice president for educational outreach and international programs. He says the center creates opportunities for both schools’ students to complete four-year degrees in engineering, computer science, advanced manufacturing and other fields.
Ezzeddine says Wayne State has existing programs at the community college, and the new facility further integrates them. The center also intends to work closely with nearby automotive- and military-related research and production facilities.
The center plans to open in the fall of 2014.
