The University of Nevada, Las Vegas broke ground on the $75 million Advanced Engineering Building in February of 2022. Located on the Maryland campus, the three-story, 52,000-sf facility will enable the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering to increase total enrollment from 3,000 to 5,000 students. The ground floor will provide undergraduates with numerous opportunities for experiential learning with a maker space, interactive classrooms, and a flexible auditorium and event venue. Dry labs on the second story will accelerate the creation of new electronic technologies and cybersecurity solutions, with the third floor accommodating wet research functions. Promoting regional economic growth through the development of industry partnerships, the building will include collaboration spaces, open office environments, and a shaded outdoor courtyard. Occupancy is expected in 2024.
