MSOE has been at the center of downtown’s resurgence with an expanding campus in the heart of downtown. Physically growing but also growing in stature and relevance as this region strives to meet employee demand for construction and related professionals. The University has also been forging into the computer science and has established a new AI initiative that will put MSOE at the center of many crucial discussions around innovation. Also timed with the announcement of Foxconn, MSOE is well positioned to accelerate growth within the region.
