Delgado celebrates new Advanced Technology Center in Algiers

On August 16, Delgado Community College celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the new Advanced Technology Center at the West Bank Campus in Algiers, Louisiana. The Delgado Advanced Technology Center represents a significant expansion of the 15-acre footprint of the West Bank Campus.

This center will house all academic STEM programs, labs, and faculty to serve academic and workforce programs for Algiers and the West Bank of New Orleans, specifically the healthcare, petrochemical, digital media, and transportation logistics industries.

“This beautiful facility provides a magnificent gateway to the main entrance to New Orleans Riverside at Federal City and personifies the Algiers Development District’s ongoing commitment to education,” said Mark Major, Chairman, Board of Commissioners for the Algiers Development District.

This facility will be a place to foster innovation, education, and technology in an academic environment. It will serve as a place of gathering, study, research, active learning, and collaboration.
