Metropolitan Community College Automotive Tech Facility

Located on the MCC South Omaha Campus, the new MCC Auto Tech Facility is a 100,000 square-foot building that serves as home of the College’s Automotive Technology and Automotive Collision Technology programs.

The purposeful incorporation of nature and biophilic elements aid the facility to achieve LEEDv4 Silver certification. The program facilitates key partnerships between the college and private industry partners such as Toyota, Scion, and Lexus.

The facility features state-of-the-art learning environments for MCC students, faculty, and staff that are spread over two floors. Hands-on lab environments are located on the first floor of the facility and make up most of the building’s overall footprint while conventional classrooms, break areas, faculty and administrative offices, and a large showroom are located on the second floor. In order to make both programs more visible to the public and private industry partners, the two floors of the building are connected by ample amounts of interior glass. This allows visitors of the facility to see the entire building from the second floor, observing the educational activities taking place on the first floor without disturbing ongoing classes or posing potential safety concerns.

Ultimately, the new facility sets a new standard in automotive educational environments, and will serve as an example for similar programs in the region and across the country.
