The new College of Engineering building is a 100,670 sq ft, 3-story building situated on the south side of the academic core. Within the building are 45 classroom/teaching areas contained in two blocks. The classrooms and laboratory space bracket an industrial-era inspired volume enclosing the engineering projects hall, feature labs and collaboration spaces.
The projects hall interconnects interior and exterior learning spaces. The design of the projects yard, entrance and exhibit plaza allow for movement of large projects in and out.
The top floor of the building features an accessible rooftop area with the solar-thermal lab and additional open space.
