Our Growing Need
There’s a difference between a building…and a home.
At the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, we envision a learning environment where walls bring people together – not keep them apart.
A place where students and faculty can further their knowledge and skills through better access to resources, advanced technologies – and to one another.
A place of connection.
One that will attract and welcome new students and faculty to our community and better serve their emerging needs.
A place to learn. A place to grow. A place to thrive.
