In the last five years, the College of Engineering has witnessed an unprecedented growth in student enrollment and number of faculty positions. The College is positioned to further enhance its growth of students, faculty, staff, and facilities as well as its research productivity and its graduate and undergraduate programs.
Thanks to substantial growth in both student enrollment and tenure-track faculty positions, the College of Engineering has received funding to build a new engineering building, scheduled to be completed in 2020. The new engineering building provides both additional space critically needed by the College and the modern facilities capable of supporting high-tech research and laboratory space. This building will allow the College to pursue its strategic vision, serve Nevada and the nation, and educate future generations of engineering professionals.
