ALIC @ Bessemer brings the educational mission of Allegheny College directly to the community and industry partners to equip our regional workforce to adapt to emerging technological development and advances in business operations. The space is being designed to mimic the real-world environment, providing off-site training and onboarding opportunities so industry partners can avoid production line shut-downs for this purpose. 

The three-story space is being outfitted with advanced manufacturing equipment including:

  • 5-axis CNC machines
  • electrical discharge machining
  • additive manufacturing
  • automation technologies
  • mechatronics, research laboratories
  • quality assurance technologies
  • computer labs

Industry Workshops

Launched in Summer 2023, industry workshops respond to the needs of the region and are taught by industry experts with educational support from Allegheny. 

Looking to the Future

ALIC @ Bessemer will eventually include a Research and Development Hub where regional companies, alumni-owned businesses, students, and professors will work together to generate solutions to industry problems. The R&D Hub will also serve as an incubator for student-led startups. This expansion solidifies Allegheny College’s position as a national leader in the intersection of the liberal arts and emerging technologies with a focus on workforce and economic development.
