The Florida Institute of Technology announced Thursday it will use a $1.4 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to launch a "Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Innovative Design," or CAMID, in a 100,000-square-foot facility formerly used by Intersil.

The center is designed to "advance the capabilities of U.S. companies in next-generation manufacturing methods while ensuring students are exposed to technology and ideas that will influence the global manufacturing marketplace for years to come," the university said.

The center will be aimed at enhancing the digital product development and operations of manufacturers as well as helping their supply chains.
