UT-Rio Grande Valley in Line for New Engineering Building

The University of Texas System Board of Regents approved a plan that will bring a new facility to the UT-Rio Grande Valley campus in Edinburg, TX. The 53,400-square-foot building, dubbed the Interdisciplinary Engineering and Academics Studies Building, will go north at a cost of $35.6 million.

The main goal of the new building is to increase the number of engineering students by 48%. Enrollment is currently 3,076 students; it’s hoped that total will expand to 4,553 by 2028. According to Edinburg Mayor Richard Garcia, the new facility will offer six engineering teaching labs, two computer labs, 60-seat general classrooms and offices.

A Notice to Proceed is planned for March 2017, with completion scheduled for November 2018.
