Renovations for Titusville’s science center to begin in April

Work is scheduled to begin in April on renovations to Pitt–Titusville’s Broadhurst Science Center, the first of four phases to upgrade the facilities at the Education and Training Hub

Broadhurst Science Center will house health sciences programs, including the associate degree in nursing and the medical assistant certificate program that will be offered by Manchester Bidwell Corp., once the renovations are complete.

The project was paused last year, as were many other Pitt construction projects, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Considering the great significance of the hub to the viability of the campus and the region, we now have the green light to proceed with this important project,” said Catherine Koverola, Pitt–Titusville’s president.

Perry Construction of Erie is the general contractor for the renovation project.

The hub officially launched in August and currently offers an associate degree in nursing program. Additional programs and certifications, designed to serve the needs of residents and employers in the region, will be added later this year.
