Construction is nearly complete on the $16.5-million Advanced Manufacturing and Innovation Center (AMIC) in Knowledge Park, just south of Burke Center. The two-story, 60,000-square-foot building will be a collaborative research and development facility with classrooms, engineering labs, faculty offices, and private industry space. Industrial tenants are expected to occupy nearly half the building along with mechanical and industrial engineering faculty.

 The college expects to open the center, which will also include a Tim Hortons bakery and coffee shop, by late spring.
