New Science, Engineering, Technology Building to Prepare Students for Jobs of Future
With employment in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields projected to grow faster than average compared to other occupations, businesses will be challenged to fulfill their workforce demands. Opening at this critical time, the new Science, Engineering, and Technology Building at Howard Community College will prepare students to meet the need for STEM professionals. At 145,300 square feet, the building features innovative instructional spaces and modern advances in laboratory design. Among its many features are a two-story engineering big build room, four-story physics drop zone, digital fabrication/three-dimensional printing room, rooftop telescope observation, and labs for biology, computer forensics, cybersecurity, genetics, horticulture, and microbiology. The $76.7 million building was funded by the state of Maryland and Howard County.
