About the Project
Thayer School of Engineering is planning to construct a new building to support the planned expansion of faculty, students, and program. An expanded Thayer will increase access to faculty through lower student-faculty ratios, expand opportunity for all students to integrate engineering and the liberal arts, and increase research and entrepreneurship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.
The proposed new building is being developed in partnership with the Computer Science department to accommodate the relocation of that department, and to maximize interface between the computational and physical elements of similar fields. This will create a dynamic environment for synthesized collaboration and entrepreneurship across a broad array of disciplines, including medicine, energy, security, robotics, electronics and product design.
The proposed facility is located south of the Maclean Engineering Sciences Center on the west end of the Dartmouth campus.
