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 permit teams of researchers and students from Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, Cognitive and Learning Sciences, Computer Science, and Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology to work together in collaborative spaces with shared equipment. The estimated investment of $53,100,000 will allow Michigan Tech’s engineers and scientists to continue to contribute to economic prosperity through development of technologies and preparation of the future technological workforce.
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.
“As the Upper Peninsula's major research university, Michigan Tech’s faculty and staff recently identified quality of life and health outcomes as a major component of our five-year growth plan. Thanks to the support of our state leaders, the H-STEM Complex will accelerate our efforts to create technological solutions to enhance health and quality of life, not only for our local communities, but for the entire state.”
