Building Success Campaign
The Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture is launching an ambitious effort to support the next generation of engineering and design students.
With the completion of our new Student Success Building, Voiland College students will have a central location geared toward providing the critical services that are foundational to their success at college and beyond.
Our Mission, Our Vision
When it comes to solving the world’s biggest design and engineering challenges, Cougs have always led the way.
For more than 130 years, Washington State University has provided opportunities for generations of engineers and architects to build better lives for themselves and those around them.
Today, industry demand for engineers, computer scientists, construction managers, and design graduates is now at an all-time high.
The Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture continues to provide a pathway to education and opportunity. Enrollment in Voiland College had doubled since 2015, to nearly 6000 students, making up nearly 20% of the entire student body of Washington State University.
But with older facilities, space constraints, and technological advances, the college’s classrooms and learning environments have become outdated.
At this critical time, we believe our students deserve facilities that can support their growing and changing needs and help them find their pathway to success.
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.
New Student Success Building
Voiland College’s new Student Success Building will support generations of future problem solvers through flexible and adaptable design features that include:
- Student Collaboration Zones
- Career Center
- Tutoring Center
- Academic Advising Center
- Student Club Activity Zones
- Innovative, Flexible Classrooms
- First-year Student Engagement Studios
- Senior Capstone Project Design Spaces
Your support is key to our student’s success.
