The Engineering Lab consists of a newly constructed state of the art two-story facility for the College of Engineering. This facility, consisting of 116,200 GSF, now replaces teaching laboratories, graduate research space, computer labs, offices and other special instruction spaces that were previously housed in other facilities. A secondary effect of this project will be the minimal renovation of Building 13, Aerospace Industrial Engineering, for use by the College of Environmental Design's Art Department. Construction began in October 1998 and was completed and open for classes in Fall 2001. Construction cost on this project was $20,900,000.
