We’re Aggressively Seeking Collaborative Opportunities

Advanced Manufacturing + State of the Art Laboratories As the region’s center for education, medicine and business, innovation surrounds us. And as those in the know will attest, many of these innovations are applied to multiple disciplines right here in our backyard. It doesn’t hurt that our region is second only to the Pentagon in military presence and has the second largest concentration of engineers in the country. Robotics, modeling & simulation, fabrication, space travel… Even though we have them, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know the strategic advantages our location can provide.
