Mike Vogel, principal at GRAEF, is the Milwaukee Bucks’ Training Center structural engineering project manager, but he is also professor Vogel. Serving as a structural engineering adjunct professor at Marquette University, Vogel has helped create a three-way learning opportunity among Marquette, GRAEF and the Bucks. Students spent the semester learning advanced structural steel design and recently, the group of 12 students took an on-site tour of the Milwaukee Bucks’ Arena and the Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Science Center (Milwaukee Bucks Training Center) during the construction phase. The tour was made possible by the Milwaukee Bucks and ICON Venue Group.
