A Message From the Dean

The new year has brought a new and innovative makerspace for CETA. One of the largest lecture rooms on campus has been renovated to provide students an opportunity to design and create their own concepts, whether personal interests or for assigned course work. The United Technologies Hall space is equipped with tools, 3D printers, scanners, and lockers for students to create and store their prototypes. There is a designated area for students to use power tools that will require safety goggles, whereas the rest of the room will be an open collaboration area to allow students to work with light tools, rolling white boards, and design stations without safety equipment. The space will be open to students with flexible hours to accommodate their schedules.

This is an exciting new capability for the college, realizing a long-term goal of supporting the hands-on and creative capabilities of our students. The new University Facilities Master Plan shows even more growth opportunities for CETA in the future.

Louis Manzione, Dean
