Opened in 2014, the Innovation Center at Penn State Great Valley includes high-tech classrooms, advising offices, a fully equipped circuits lab, robotics center, and a fabrication and design facility outfitted with the latest engineering technologies.
This state-of-the-art facility gives students hands-on experience using professional engineering equipment and software, such as multiple 3D printers, machining centers, a laser engraver, and other shop tools. The suite’s cost was approximately $2.5 million.
"The engineering industry is looking for colleges to move beyond interdisciplinary projects and to create interdisciplinary curricula that provide students with a broad range of skills. Penn State's unique engineering program meets that need." – Dr. Kathryn Jablokow, Professor of Mechanical Engineering & Engineering Design at Penn State Great Valley.
