The new Administration Building, the Student Centre and the Tourism and Hospitality Building are the latest additions to the campus along with the Rubicon Centre which is an on-site business incubation centre. The NIMBUS Centre is adjacent to and attached to the Rubicon Centre. The NIMBUS Centre provides space for up to 80 researchers, including facilities for undergraduate project students, visiting postgraduate students and researchers from other institutions and dedicated industry visitor workstations, already in use, where company researchers can work in close collaboration with NIMBUS staff and use NIMBUS research facilities. NIMBUS is MTU’s first dedicated research centre and is intended not only to be a showcase for MTU’s research but also to demonstrate MTU’s ability to translate innovative research into economic benefit.
