Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester has received $150,000 and a $25-million state bond investment to renovate and create a new advanced manufacturing and robotics center, the school announced on Monday.

The funding will pay for upgrading and expanding QCC’s athletic center to showcase advanced manufacturing, robotics, artificial intelligence, and hospitality programming, per the school.

Dubbed the I3Q Center, it will provide training for a number of disciplines, including robotics/advanced manufacturing, artificial intelligence, drone training, mobile app development, e-gaming testing, website development, hospitality and food service.

“This is an exciting day for the future of QCC and for our entire community,” said QCC President Luis Pedraja, in a statement.

The center will also house the school’s intercollegiate sports teams, as well as a full health and wellness center for both the school and the community, according to QCC.

A timeline for the project was not immediately disclosed.
