Duke University has announced plans to build a $100 million, 85,000-square-foot building for programs in engineering and physics.
The new building on Duke’s West Campus is slated to open in 2018 and will promote collaboration between students and engineering and physics faculty, the university said. It was announced last weekend in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of engineering at Duke.
Current plans include teaching labs and classrooms, an auditorium and research space for both engineering and physics faculty. The money will be raised as part of Duke’s seven-year, $3.25 billion fund raising campaign.
Pending final approval by Duke’s Board of Trustees, construction will begin in late 2016.
