AbstractThe University of Pittsburgh is helping breathe new life into a relic of Pittsburgh's industrial past by moving the university's manufacturing help center to Homewood from Harmar. Pitt recently inked a deal to lease 11,500-square feet in the 150,000-square-foot former Westinghouse manufacturing facility on Susquehanna Street, where the university will offer hands-on training in advanced machine tools and computer-aided manufacturing, said Bopaya Bidanda, who chairs Pitt's Industrial Engineering Department. The first 15-week class is expected to form in February or March with up to 14 students.
