March 1, 2018

More than 200 people attended the dedication ceremony for Farris Engineering Center on March 1.

The renovated building houses the School of Engineering departments of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Computer Science and Nuclear Engineering. Farris Engineering Center houses the staff and student offices, computer labs, server rooms, conference rooms and event space for the three departments.

The renovation utilizes the original concrete structural skeleton of the original building. The project was creatively designed around maximizing reuse, reducing waste in the demolition. The entire project has more than an 85 percent recycling rate for construction waste management.
