Harvey Mudd College broke ground in late September of 2019 on the $30 million McGregor Computer Science Center in Claremont, Calif. Designed by Steinberg Hart, the three-story, 36,000-sf facility will collocate the department of computer science with a campus-wide maker space to create a vibrant hub for project-based learning. The academic component will offer teaching and research labs, faculty and administrative offices, clinic and project studios, study areas, conference rooms, collaboration venues, and a computer science lab. Located on the first floor of the building, a 12,000-sf maker space will provide a large open work area, co-working and development facilities, an interaction lounge, and space for rapid prototyping and light-to-medium fabrication. The maker space is strategically sited next to renovated metal and wood machine shops to accommodate heavy fabrication activities. Completion is expected in spring of 2021.
