Integrated Engineering and Science Education Building
Dear Alumni and Friends:
As Dean of the College of Engineering and Science, I am proud to announce the Campaign for a new Integrated Engineering and Science Building. I am convinced that this building is the single most important need in our college at this time.
Louisiana Tech’s College of Engineering and Science is already regarded as a national leader in engineering and science education because of its integrated and projects-based approach. Unfortunately, our facilities have not kept up with our academic reputation. This building will provide new active learning space for first and second year engineering and science students, for the first time since Bogard Hall was opened in 1940. The modern facility will also serve as an excellent recruiting tool for our college, especially in East Texas where many high schools have outstanding facilities and where many of our peer colleges have also recently built new facilities.
The three-story building will be located in the new Enterprise Park, adjacent to Bogard Hall, and will feature new active learning class labs, shops and meeting rooms for engineering, math and science classes.
With our economy just starting to rebound nationally and higher education in the state of Louisiana preparing to receive still more cuts in funding, some may question the timing of such an undertaking. However, I also believe that there are moments in the life of every college when a collaborative effort, such as a capital campaign, can make the difference between greatness and excellence. I think that we have arrived at that moment and hope you will work with me and our Campaign Committee to raise our facilities to the same level of excellence as our academic programs.
The power of partnerships is unlimited. Please help us accomplish together what we cannot do alone.
