Perhaps the political centerpiece of Lansing Community College's new campus off Mt. Hope Road in Delta Township is a program in alternative energy. It's the first of its kind in Michigan, and it will help train students in more fuel efficient sources of energy. At the new campus's kickoff Monday, Senator Carl Levin heralded the place it will put Michigan in a national theater of energy research.
Other highlights include voice and handwriting recognition software for Office Administration students, computer design programs for technology, and borrowed precision manufacturing equipment for the program in that field. These kinds of equipment are necessary, LCC says, to put students on the cutting edge of these emerging fields.
