OIT | Center for Excellence in Engineering & Technology

The Center for Excellence in Engineering and Technology (CEET) at Oregon Tech University embodies the goals and aspirations of the school’s administration, faculty, staff, students, and alumni.

An innovative facility for learning and workforce training, the CEET will provide highly visible workspaces and advanced labs for the students of Oregon Tech. It will be a center of creativity and imagination: a place of makerspaces, tools, and materials as well as classrooms, teaching labs, applied-technology laboratories, a boardroom, and an office suite for the Dean of the College of Engineering. Designed to be a catalyst for innovation and transdisciplinary collaboration between students, faculty, industry, and the community, the new building will allow for the consolidation and expansions of the critical functions of the college.

One of the primary project goals is the creation of an iconic building that will serve as a new campus entry point, visible from the main vehicular approach. Utilizing the substantial grade change from the lower campus to the main campus level, a large stepped gathering space sits at the heart of the building, designed to facilitate collaboration and interactions. Visually accessible from the main gathering space and has a clear, simple organizational and structural scheme. Thoughtful planning of building infrastructure distribution also provides flexibility for future changes in program needs.
