The H-STEM project is a State of Michigan Capital Outlay project; meaning that about 2/3 of the funding comes from the State of Michigan. For nine months this project was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the end of December 2020, the State gave Michigan Tech approval to proceed with final design and construction. We are currently working on developing the details of the concept design that was completed in early 2020 and finalizing the construction documents. The current schedule is to have the project out for bid to contractors in late 2021, with awards, material procurement, and mobilization to occur in early 2022. Construction is planned to begin in May 2022 with completion and occupancy currently scheduled for January 2024.
Research for Tomorrow
H-STEM—the application of science, technology, engineering, and math to improve human health and quality of life.
In late 2018, the Michigan Legislature granted planning authorization for Michigan Technological University’s H-STEM Engineering and Health Technologies Complex (H-STEM Complex). The H-STEM Complex will support Michigan Tech’s integrated educational programs in health-related and human-centered technological innovations. In the H-STEM Complex, multidisciplinary teams will work together in shared, flexible, collaborative lab spaces to advance learning, develop new technologies, and prepare a skilled workforce for tomorrow.
The planning and design process is underway and continues.
