University of Connecticut Key Developments

University of Connecticut In Talks To Buy A Nathan Hale Inn

University of Connecticut is in negotiations to buy Nathan Hale Inn and Conference Center for about $9.1 million. The Board will consider on December 10, 2014, if the university should negotiate a purchase agreement with the owners. Stephanie Reitz, Spokeswoman of University of Connecticut said, "Acquiring it would be more cost-effective than building a new dorm of the same size, so it's an opportunity for the university to add student housing in a fiscally responsible way."

University of Connecticut and FEI Co. Announce New Collaboration to Create World-Class Microscopy Center

The University of Connecticut and FEI Co. have signed an agreement to develop a cutting-edge center for microscopy and materials science research. The center, which will be housed in the new Innovation Partnership Building at UConn's Tech Park, will feature some of the most advanced commercially available electron microscopes. The center will focus on the advanced characterization of materials, which has nearly limitless applications, ranging from clean energy and alternative fuels, to advanced manufacturing technology; semiconductors; vaccine development; and the development of medical devices. The center will open its doors in mid-2015, with the arrival of the first three microscopes from FEI. These instruments will be housed in UConn's Institute of Materials Science. The center will move to its permanent home in Tech Park's Innovation Partnership Building when construction is complete, which is currently scheduled for 2017. Funding for the center is being provided in roughly equal amounts by both UConn and Hillsboro, Ore.-based FEI, and is expected to exceed $25 million over a 15-year period. When complete, the center will house a total of seven instruments from FEI, including the microscope, Titan Themis TEM, which is capable of more than one-hundred million times magnification, allowing scientists to see the individual atoms that materials are made of, determine their arrangement, and measure the electrical and magnetic forces they exert on one another. In addition to the acquisition of the instruments, the agreement includes research funding and support for an electron microscopy scientist and numerous graduate student fellowships. The new microscopy center may also draw researchers from peer academic institutions and industry to the facility to take advantage of its advanced materials characterization capabilities.

Pratt & Whitney Partners with University of Connecticut to Advance Additive Manufacturing Research

Pratt & Whitney partnered with the University of Connecticut to establish one of the nation's most advanced additive manufacturing laboratories, the Pratt & Whitney Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center. This facility will be used to further additive manufacturing research and development, and is the first in the Northeast to work with metals rather than plastics. Additive manufacturing is the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies. Materials are added, versus the traditional subtractive methods such as stamping, forging, computer numerical controlled machining, to precise geometries determined by CAD drawings. Pratt & Whitney invested more than $4.5 million in the Pratt & Whitney Additive Manufacturing Center and over the next five years will invest more than $3.5 million in the facility.
