Senate Passes FY 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act
Senator Shelby said, “I am pleased to announce these funds for the second phase of Auburn University’s Transportation Technology Center. The Transportation Technology Center will house research, instructional and administrative offices for a multitude of engineering programs within the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. The first phase of the facility will house laboratories, classrooms, lecture halls and administrative and faculty offices. The second phase will include facilities to accommodate the Department of Mechanical Engineering with research emphasis on vehicle dynamics, fuel cells and advanced propulsion systems. The second phase will also house general laboratories, clean room facilities and incubator laboratories designed to grow innovative technologies to improve transportation infrastructure. This phase will add the square footage needed to increase research funding and development efforts, and ultimately job creation.”
“Indeed, the Transportation Technology Center at Auburn will continue the College of Engineering’s commitment to attracting excellent faculty while also producing graduates who have excelled in science and engineering,” Shelby added.
