WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Pitt Community College administrators broke ground at the site of the college’s future Science and Technology Training Center.
The 75,000 square foot building will house classrooms, labs, a biology center, and a STEM learning center.
It will cost more than $16 million to build and equip. That money comes from funding from the more than $19 million bond Pitt County voters approved back in 2013.
The new facility will help more students enter the bio-tech field at Pitt.
PCC currently uses the Tech Enterprise Center of Eastern North Carolina in Greenville for biotechnology training.
The county-owned facility was supposed to be a short-term arrangement when the deal was made 12 years ago.
