The Science and Technology Building
AIMS TO PROMOTE RESEARCH, INTERDISCIPLINARYITY, ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION
The construction of the new Science and Technology building began on July 2014, with a four-month excavation and strengthening of the base stage. Located in Campus San Joaquín, east of the “A classes”, the building will have seven floors with classrooms; laboratories with the latest technology for up to 500 students; a new student hall; a dining hall for up to 168 people; meeting spaces; two underground floors for parking over 250 vehicles, among other innovations.
The building is expected to open in 2016, providing more than 13 thousand square meters (42.6512 feet) for Engineering UC students and the entire UC Community. The goal for these new spaces is to promote research, interdisciplinarity, entrepreneurship and innovation.
The project is part of the Strategic Development Plan 2011-2015 of Engineering UC, headed by the Dean Juan Carlos de la Llera. The design was made by a group of 10 professionals, directed by the architects Fernando Pérez, José Rosas and Philippe Blanc.
