Wayne Community College’s new Center for Industrial Technology and Engineering (CITE) was “topped out” with its final steel beam on Thursday, Nov. 16. WCC President Patty Pfeiffer helped Steel Tech workers place the beam in the building.
“Today is especially exciting because we have reached a major milestone in this construction project,” said Pfeiffer. “CITE will serve as a regional resource to meet the workforce needs of our current and future businesses and industries.”
The CITE building will house many of the College’s Applied Technologies programs, including HVAC, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Industrial Systems, Operations Management, and Machining.
CITE, which is just over 40,000 square-feet, will contain seven classrooms, six lab spaces, a machine shop, flexible use space for Workforce Continuing Education, and faculty offices.
The building is estimated to be completed and open for use by the fall 2024 semester.
