The historically black colleges and universities throughout the country have a rich history in providing a sound education in every facet of academia to African American students. But over the last 20 years, the campuses have diversified with others attracted to the richness of the experience and a premium education. But now, one HBCU can boast state of the art facilities as yet another attraction to the school.
Baltimore’s Morgan State University has one of the top engineering schools in the country and they’ve added a new science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) based center to their engineering complex called the Center for the Built Environment and Infrastructure Studies. The Baltimore Sun reported:
“The $69.9 million center, which opened Thursday, features learning technologies such as an earthquake simulation chamber, a 3-D projector and an architecture studio. The earthquake studio is one of two on the East Coast and can simulate seismic activity up to a magnitude of 9.0.”
Wow! Dr. Eugene DeLoatch is the governing force behind Morgan’s engineering school. He is the Dean of the school of engineering and has built the program from its infancy starting back in 1984. The engineering school has blossomed into its own science complex with its first building in 1991 an addition in 1998, and now the state of the art CBEIS building.
It’s time we get our children prepared for a winning scientific experience at a premier HBCU that has been able to boast that “Morgan produces more African-American scientists and engineers than any other college or university in the State of Maryland.”
