Learned Engineering Expansion Phase 2/Main Campus Building

1536 W. 15th Street Lawrence , KS 66045

Construction continues on the second of two structures built as part of an $80 million expansion of the School of Engineering complex. An extension of the Measurement, Materials & Sustainable Environment Center, it will be three stories and 110,000 square feet. It will extend west and south to the area formerly occupied by Burt Hall, razed to make room for the new structure.

The project received initial funding of $35 million in bonding authority through the University Engineering Initiative Act of 2011.  A combination of donor gifts through KU Endowment, and funds from the KU Center for Research, industry partners and other university funds will leverage the state's investment. 

When completed in summer 2015, the facility will have six multimedia, active-learning classrooms, eight teaching laboratories, four shared research spaces, and individual research spaces for new faculty. It will also contain the Engineering Career Center, undergraduate student recruitment and retention services, student meeting rooms and group offices, informal study areas, and graduate student offices.
