The Technology Building was programmed as a major addition and renovation of an underutilized gymnasium. For the first time in Kent’s history, a regional campus is home to an academic department. This 68,000 square-foot facility houses offices, classrooms, and laboratories for the school’s various technology education programs, including plastics manufacturing, robotics, environmental and laboratory technologies.
Distance learning and video conference rooms allow students at Kent’s seven other campuses easier access to the technology classes. The building also includes continuing studies and a Workforce Development Center, which will interface with area companies to create academic and training programs to upgrade the skills of current workers and better prepare future workers.
