Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University recently kicked off construction of its new STEM Education Center, located at the college’s Prescott, Ariz., campus.
According to Embry-Riddle, the $22 million, 52,500-square-foot facility is expected to be ready at the beginning of next year’s fall semester.
The university says the STEM Education Center will comprise “classrooms, meeting rooms, a multimedia center and a planetarium dome,” as well as 20 different labs.
Two of these labs include a robotics lab for mechanical engineering students and a Raisbeck Engineering lab, which will offer students “hands-on experience working on the next generation of commercial aircraft, military aircraft and unmanned aerial systems.”
