Renovations open doors to manufacturing careers

Hands-on learning in STEM fields such as additive manufacturing and battery management systems are the focus of a major renovation of Indiana Tech‘s Zollner Engineering Center.

Expansion of the 70,000-square-foot, cutting-edge facility was funded by nearly $22 million from the university and contributions from organizations like the Don Wood Foundation and the U.S. Department of Commerce. New features include state-of-the-art labs, high-tech classrooms, and collaborative spaces.

The upgraded Zollner Center fosters industry partnerships, enhancing real-world learning opportunities for students and serving the needs of regional companies.

“With a focus on talent attraction, development, and retention, the university aims to position itself as a go-to resource for industry partners seeking skilled professionals to meet the demands of a rapidly evolving economy,” reported Input Fort Wayne.
