Dartmouth is constructing a new Center for Engineering and Computer Science that will also house the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship and Electron Microscope Facility. The expanded engineering and computer science programs 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 new building is being funded wholly from philanthropy and developed in partnership with engineering and computer science to maximize the 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" says Dartmouth Provost Joseph Helble, former Dean of the Thayer School.
A number of related enabling and improvement projects are underway in close coordination with construction of the Center for Engineering and Computer Science building. The following projects will address parking and transit changes, improve landscaping, and provide energy efficient utilities throughout the west end.
Efforts are being made to mitigate construction-related disruptions to the student, employee, and neighbor communities with regular communications to help keep these constituents well-informed of project activities.
Dartmouth is committed to construction high-performance buildings that meet and exceed energy or efficiency standards. Click here to see the CECS sustainable building features.
