North Plaza at MBIT reopens with ribbon cutting ceremony!

The Executive Council Middle Bucks Institute of Technology (MBIT), held a ribbon-cutting cer­e­mo­ny to com­mem­o­rate the com­ple­tion of the north plaza dur­ing their November meet­ing.  The north plaza project pro­vides the MBIT com­mu­ni­ty with a new­ly designed space to gath­er. The design was inten­tion­al to include more green space for collaboration.

MBIT Administrative Director, Dr. Mark Covelle says; “We are thrilled to open our new­ly ren­o­vat­ed north plaza to our school com­mu­ni­ty.  The north plaza is part of a larg­er cap­i­tal project to mod­ern­ize and improve our build­ing so that we can deliv­er anoth­er fifty years of world class career and tech­ni­cal edu­ca­tion to the com­mu­ni­ties of Middle Bucks.  We are grate­ful for the sup­port of our Executive Committee and our four mem­ber dis­tricts: Centennial, Central Bucks, Council Rock, and New Hope – Solebury.  This project is more than a ren­o­va­tion; as a career and tech­ni­cal cen­ter, stu­dents will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to use the new space for col­lab­o­ra­tion and inte­gra­tion in their pro­gram areas of study.  If you’d like to see the new­ly ren­o­vat­ed north plaza, feel free to join us on December 1 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for our annu­al open house.”

Students in the Horticulture, Landscape and Design pro­gram will learn their skills along­side their instruc­tor Mr. Greg Smith, and Facilities Manager, Mr. Warren Anders on how to design and enhance the space with land­scape design.

It is my absolute plea­sure to have rep­re­sent­ed MBIT through the cre­ation of our ren­o­vat­ed main entrance plaza. The fresh new design is safer, more func­tion­al as well as visu­al­ly appeal­ing. Special thanks to con­trac­tors, fac­ul­ty and staff, as well as the trans­porta­tion direc­tors and stu­dents who made the process swift and free of issue.” stat­ed Mr. Warren Anders, Facilities Manager

The MBIT expe­ri­ence pro­vides stu­dents with a blend of class­room the­o­ry, tech­ni­cal appli­ca­tions in state-of-the-art lab­o­ra­to­ries, and off-campus work-based expe­ri­ences.  Students learn and apply read­ing, writ­ing, math­e­mat­ics, sci­ence, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, and tech­nol­o­gy in a way that has per­son­al mean­ing and career rel­e­vance.   The edu­ca­tion­al pro­gram is orga­nized around five broad career path­ways and offers twenty-one state-approved career pro­grams.   MBIT pre­pares today’s stu­dents for tomor­row’s emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies and pro­vides stu­dents with the com­pet­i­tive edge need­ed for employ­ment in a glob­al mar­ket­place and suc­cess in college.
