Open technology infrastructure accommodates next generation training needs emphasizing the importance of flexibility and creating a powerful link between education and employers.
As the Executive Architect for the Mott Community College campus, SSOE has provided various design and engineering services for the campus facilities, including new construction, strategic land development, building renovations and additions, HVAC systems design, boiler replacements, building investigations, capital outlay reports, parking lot studies, asbestos abatement, and a campus master plan for over ten years. We have completed more than 40 projects on the Mott Community College campus, including the nursing and applied health laboratories.
The Curtice Mott building, one of the most impressive facilities on the campus, is most recently completed. It houses the simulation laboratories, practice rooms, and classrooms for Nursing and Applied Health Sciences students.
SSOE’s responsibilities included coordination of the technology and distance learning that made it possible for students to work with SimMan: A cutting-edge, high-tech manikin that exhibits realistic blood pressure, heart and lung sounds, breathes, moans, and speaks. Under instructor guidance, the new technology, and the SimMan allows students to witness and respond in real-time to a variety of patient clinical situations, including cardiac arrest. The students, via the coordinated technology, can interact hands-on in a patient room setting or can view and answer professor questions from a classroom while witnessing procedures via flat screen televisions and video networking. The simulation set-up also included individual control and head wall units along each bedside station, complete with vacuum and oxygen compressors.
