Building for the future
Support the new interdisciplinary Engineering Building
Although the College of Engineering has nearly doubled in degrees granted annually since 2009, our student-focused facilities have grown by just 18 percent (in square footage) in that time, leading to a space shortage, and the College continues to turn away large numbers of qualified students because we simply don’t have the space to accommodate them. And, not only are we lacking enough space, but we lack the right kinds of space for today’s interdisciplinary, collaborative engineering education.
As the ways we teach and conduct research evolve in response to changing industry needs, our spaces must also evolve and expand. Our goal is not only to expand, but to become more inclusive, collaborative, innovative and adaptable.
The state has approved design and construction funding of $50 million for a new, Interdisciplinary Engineering Building (IEB) to provide an academic home for all undergraduate engineering students; now, we seek to match these funds with private philanthropic investments to meet the estimated project cost of $102 million.
With your help, we can provide the learning and research facilities that best support future engineers.
Help us build the IEB
Your gift supports new construction of the IEB, and helps the College of Engineering provide Washington’s leading engineering education and develop outstanding engineers and ideas that change the world.
