Garmin to open facility in S&T Technology Development Center

Garmin International Inc. is expanding its engineering internship program through the opening of a new software engineering facility at Missouri University of Science and Technology. The facility is designed to support semester-long part-time internships throughout the school year and full-time internships during the summer.

S&T students who participate in the internships will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with Garmin engineers and will get hands-on experience developing the next generation of Garmin GPS products.

Garmin worked closely with S&T’s Office of EconomicBob Buehler of Garmin International Development and Technology Transfer (TTED) to open the new facility. It is located at the Technology Development Center, a 22,000-square-foot building located in Innovation Park on 10th Street in Rolla. This state-of-the-art building is home to six other start-up companies and economic development support organizations.

“We are incredibly pleased to have Garmin open this center at S&T,” says Keith Strassner, TTED director. “We have had a very strong partnership with Garmin for many years and this center will help strengthen and grow that relationship. It provides a great opportunity for our students and the community.”
