The Computer Science and Engineering building was designed to create a sense of community among the department's faculty, staff, students, and visitors. "Interaction spaces" for scholarly activity are located throughout the building where graduate and undergraduate students can drop in to discuss classroom topics, share research ideas, or hold casual conversations. The building houses laboratories dedicated to undergraduate instruction, as well as research facilities designed for ultimate flexibility so faculty and researchers can work on the technologies of the future. The building provides accommodations for visiting researchers and scientists, reflecting Computer Science and Engineering's commitment to the development of strong partnerships with industry and other academic institutions. Groundbreaking on the new building took place on May 31, 2002, with the department taking occupancy in July, 2005. View the groundbreaking press release.
