FLINT (AP) – The University of Michigan-Flint is responding to a growth in its engineering program by investing in high-tech equipment for the students.

Engineering enrollment has doubled since 2008 and now stands at 320 students.

To meet the demand, the school has acquired a $75,000 microscope that magnifies objects 60,000 times and expects to get a $100,000 three-dimensional printer.

The department also is hiring two new professors.
