$12 million advanced tech education center opens in Warren

Wayne State University has built the Advanced Technology Training Center across from Macomb County Community College's Warren campus on 12 Mile Road.

The $12-million center, which replaces a former Farmer Jack grocery store, opens Oct. 2 at 14601 E. 12 Mile Rd. and is designed to be a pipeline connecting students and potential employees with Macomb County employers in fast-growing industries such as manufacturing, transportation and defense.

The location across from MCC, which has recently added a pedestrian walkway to connect the campuses, makes it easy for students at both schools to transfer or move between campuses as they work toward degrees.

The new 40,000-square-foot training center has classroom and teaching space for 900 students.
