The first phase of the Discovery Learning Complex, a $35 million project for the College of Engineering, will involve building a five-story, 115,000 square foot facility. The initial structure will include an innovative Discovery Learning Laboratory and a two-story engineering materials and structural testing laboratory. It will also include other new teaching and research laboratories, common areas for students, and office space. The first phase will be linked to a future 150,000 square foot building that will include classrooms, offices and additional laboratories.
The university broke ground on Friday, March 5, 2010 and plans initial occupancy for August 2011.
