(MTS) will continually update its personnel training and equipment to provide the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences with the best technical services available.
Our 2-5 year goals include increasing training and capabilities in the 3-D modeling and machining areas, and cross-training several key personnel in order to improve our response time on projects that require the use of specialty equipment.
