The Indiana County Education & Technology Center, located in White Township was developed by the Indiana County Commissioners through the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development to address training needs and workforce challenges. The Commissioners wish to acknowledge the many subcontractors on the project for their craftsmanship.

There is 11,166 sq. ft. of shell space remaining for a proposed STEM education facility.
The building is located on the campus of the Indiana County Technology Center (ICTC), a technical school in Indiana County serving high school and adult students. The ICTC provides technical and academic curricula offering students both theory and hands-on education into secondary education or direct employment into the trades. Together each of these organizations serve as an educational hub for the residents of Indiana County.
