With imminent projected growth in Hopkinsville comes the need for relevant and responsive workforce training for the commercial and industrial sectors. The Emerging Technologies Center serves that need with classrooms for Precision Agriculture, Database Administration, Cyber Security, Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics and several others. It contains a mix of general education classrooms and specialized laboratories including nursing simulation, sonography, technology and health science. Spaces within are designed to be flexible to adapt for future fields of study as they emerge.
The new Center includes a Board Room, meeting spaces, faculty offices, and a recreational lounge for students. The two-story building features an open, airy atrium containing a “social staircase” to be used by students or for instruction.
Now complete, the building is sure to transform the community by offering the expanded educational opportunities needed in the region.
