Creating a culture of research, innovation and entrepreneurial thinking is one of the strategic priority areas for the 2020 Campus Master Plan.
As also shown in the 2017 Master Plan Update, the zone north of I-44 provides an optimal location for an R&D Park that would be more professional in nature. Here, S&T can leverage the value of its people and attract corporations, industry and governmental agencies to partner in cutting edge research.
The plan as drawn is flexible. Footprints are representational to illustrate flexibility for the Park to host facilities of various sizes and is not tied to any specific recommended size building or quantity of square footage. This is the planned site for S&T's Systems Integration and Prototype Development Facility.
