New construction and repurposing solutions for next-gen engineering programs

Sharon L. Wood, PhD
Dean, Cockrell School of Engineering

Align your institution’s capital plans with the explosive growth of integrated engineering programs, or risk losing the competitive edge in recruiting and retaining students, faculty, and researchers, and collaborating with industry partners. Sharon Wood distills must-have building features and lessons learned from UT Austin’s latest engineering facility capital project initiatives: The Energy Education and Research Center, Energy Engineering Building (under construction), and the renovation of a historic gymnasium to create centralized flexible space for interdisciplinary robotics research programs. She examines infrastructure requirements current and future engineering programs.
