Atlantic Cape Community College held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today, Jan. 29, to formally dedicate the Science, Technology, Engineering & Math building at the college’s Mays Landing Campus. Nearly 100 college representatives, government officials and donors who played a role in making the building a reality attended.
The centerpiece of the college’s Blueprint 2020 Master Plan, the $16 million project features five science labs, two computer labs, office space and a partially vegetated roof with walkways that will be used for telescope viewing by the college’s astronomy classes. The building is home to the air traffic control and aviation studies degree programs and the Technology Studies Institute. Located on the south side of the main campus quadrangle next to the William Spangler Library, D-building, this project marks the first Atlantic Cape building constructed at the Mays Landing Campus in more than two decades.
