Mercyhurst University is celebrating the grand opening of its Cyber Education Center.
Today, more than 150 people gather at Mercyhurst for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. This cyber education center is a project two years in the making. The Cleveland-based technology company ‘MCPC’ teamed up with the university to create the center.
The center will not only serve to educate students in the high-tech cyber field. Mercyhurst University President Michael Victor says, “This is actually where MCPC will operate its business and employ up to 20 of our students at a time. This lab will be operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, dealing with real cyber problems.”
State leaders like Representative Mike Kelly and former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge were also in attendance at the ribbon cutting. MCPC executives call the partnership with Mercyhurst a win for the students and the company.
