  5. Moving Forward This Summer

While the nation seems to be put on hold by the COVID-19 pandemic Morrison Tech has continued to move forward.  Moving forward on curriculum development, technology and even aesthetic improvements.  All in preparation for live in-person classes this Fall.

To further grow the college’s curriculum and to stay on the cutting edge, the college has installed the latest CAD software available; AutoCad 2021, Revit 2021, Civil CAD 2021, Inventor 2021, Solidworks 2020 and the most current version of NX.

A CNC Lathe, casting furnace, Wazer waterjet technology and vertical injection molding press will soon be installed and set up in the Innovation Center to enhance the hands-on projects the students create and complete both in and outside of class. 

The 3D printing lab has made a huge leap into the future by adding a FormLabs 3L printer. This printer will bring large format SLA 3D printing to the college. It will scale up in-house print production thus eliminating the turnaround time caused by outsourcing or staging large prints.  The printer will produce industrial quality parts.

To boost technology on campus, the college has increased overall internet bandwidth by tripling what the college presently had.  All wireless equipment in the dormitory has been upgraded to provide increased speed and consistency.

Aesthetically the college has replaced all exterior lights with LED’s to reduce energy usage and improve campus security.  Additional lights have been placed along the entrance and throughout the drive around campus for better visibility and safety as you drive in or walk through the campus.

On the ongoing list is updating COVID -19 safety.  You may find a Fall reopening plan on the college website.  The college understands that students are ready to get back.  Morrison Tech will not only provide a safe in person learning environment, but also keep students on the cutting edge of an innovative technical education.
