UAA's College of Engineering is on the move. With a growing reputation for excellence, increased enrollment, and a renewed emphasis on research, the College of Engineering is expanding its facilities. The Engineering & Industry Building opened in September 2015, and the revitalization of the original building is slated for completion by Fall 2016.
The new Engineering & Industry Building is already enhancing engineering teaching, learning and research, and fostering faculty-industry collaboration. Revamping the original space will help answer Alaska's call for homegrown engineering professionals. The Alaska Department of Labor has projected the state will need 120 engineering professional annually through 2018--50 new positions and 70 to replace retirees. UAA's College of Engineering is committed to producing cutting-edge graduates ready to energize the state's professional engineering community.
