BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (AP) – The University of Ohio says its expansion to a western Ohio county will not compete with other colleges in the area.
The associate dean of the school for industry associations says the university in southeastern Ohio plans to begin teaching professional development courses at a research center in Beavercreek in Greene County. Dayton Daily News reports that the school also plans to offer graduate classes at a later time.
Associate Dean Scott Miller says the goal is to meet the educational needs for the area. Currently there are no plans to offer undergraduate courses in the area.
The courses offered would probably include classes in the fields of electrical engineering, avionics, operations management, and mechanical engineering.
