‘We’re building on success here': TCNJ breaks ground on $75M STEM building

‘We’re building on success here': TCNJ breaks ground on $75M STEM building

With the help of some miniature robots, officials at The College of New Jersey broke ground Tuesday on a new 89,000-square-foot STEM building that will give its engineering and science programs 60 percent more classroom and laboratory space. The building, which will house the biomedical engineering, computer science and mechanical engineering departments, will be the anchor of a larger STEM Complex that already includes the Biology Building, Science Complex and Armstrong Hall.Continue Reading

TCNJ creating new STEM complex

The College of New Jersey is about to give a big boost to its science and tech facilities. New buildings for the Ewing school’s science programs — anchored by an 89,000-square-foot STEM center — will increase TCNJ’s science-related space by nearly 60 percent when construction is complete in August 2017. Altogether, the project will cost more than $75 million, the school said, with $40 million coming from the “Building Our Future Bond” approved by voters in 2012 for capital projects at colleges in the state.Continue Reading

Alana Huszar strikes Gold(water) with graph theory

Alana Huszar once dreamed of becoming a puppeteer or a voice actress, until she got her first taste of advanced math in a high school calculus class. That’s the moment Alana fell in love with mathematics — and she hasn’t looked back. The 20-year-old junior from Bridgewater, New Jersey, has won a Goldwater Scholarship, the premier award for college students intending to pursue research careers in science, mathematics, or engineering. The scholarship helps offset the cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board up to a maximum of $7,500.Continue Reading
