Advanced Engineering Building
The College of Engineering has grown tremendously over the past 10 years and our current space is inadequate to admit more students to the program, or hire additional faculty. Meanwhile, jobs in STEM also continue to grow, both nationally and locally.
The new three-story, 52,000 sq. ft. Advanced Engineering Building (AEB), featuring classrooms, research labs, a Maker Space and more, will help close the gap between UNLV and other comparable engineering colleges when it comes to space, and make UNLV a competitive choice for top students and researchers.
Critical to Our Mission – And to Nevada
Nevada’s future hinges on our ability to attract new industry--particularly those grounded in science and engineering. To achieve this, we must create the infrastructure to educate the engineers of tomorrow and provide research space that enables the forward-thinking progress of corporate partners. The new Advanced Engineering Building will motivate greater enrollment and graduates. It will facilitate critical research and foster innovation. And it will pave the way for the vision we all share for Nevada’s future of a robust tech-driven diversified economy.
Support for the Advanced Engineering Building
The Advanced Engineering Building is being supported by generous individuals and donor companies, in addition to the state and UNLV. In spring 2021 the Nevada State Legislature approved $36.8 million (50% of the total current cost) in funding for the building, with matching funds from UNLV. To date, private support has generated more than $10 million in commitments to supplement university funding, enhance facilities, and reduce the carrying debt load. The College continues to fundraise for this important project. If you would like to contribute to the project, please contact Jack Aylor at email@example.com.
