H-STEM Status Update - On Monday, March 9, 2020, Michigan Tech submitted a draft phase 200/300 progress report to the state Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) for review. DTMB approval is required before the legislature can allocate funding for further planning, documentation and construction. On Wednesday, March 25, we were notified that DTMB has suspended reviews of 200/300 draft reports due to the current pandemic situation. There is no timetable for when reviews are expected to resume. This information will be updated as available.
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 throughout the 2019-20 academic year.
