Sower Business Technology Lab




The mission of the Sower Business Technology Lab is to enable students to gain valuable hands-on experience, through class projects and real business simulations, in the integration and application of current cutting-edge business technologies. This student-oriented lab is constructed with students’ benefits and needs in mind. The lab prepares students with up-to-date business technology knowledge and applications. The lab provides students with a deeper understanding and a broader horizon to the business world. The lab also enables students and faculty members to actively pursue their business education and research goals.

SHSU has just completed a $145,000.00 upgrade that incorporates several technologies. The Lab provides extensive hands-on learning opportunities in such cutting edge business technologies as Robotics, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Metrology and 3-D Printing. In addition, the lab has received many other donations from various contributors including faculty and former students.

Also, because of our work in RFID, we were invited to participate in a project with the Junior League of Waco to monitor foot traffic through their annual Deck the Halls event.
