H-STEM Status Update - Michigan Tech submitted a draft phase 200/300 progress report to the state Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) in March 2020 for review. After being on hold since March, Michigan Tech has finally received word from the state DTMB that we may proceed with the H-STEM Complex project. On December 29, 2020, the Governor signed into law Public Act 257 which included authorization for construction for various State Capital Outlay projects, including our H-STEM project. We are currently in the process of restarting the final design work. This final design work will occur over the next year with the anticipated start of construction being Spring of 2022.
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.
