The center will serve as the home of the university's school of engineering and a non-profit, Einstein Project, which supports STEM education in local schools.

"It's a county building on university and border regents land, so it's a very unique partnership," UWGB Chancellor Gary Miller said.

We're told this is the first school of engineering established and based in Northeast Wisconsin, and officials boast it has the potential to transform the economy for generations.

The 63,000-square foot facility is expected to open next August.
