May 3, 2017

The Texas A&M University System held a formal groundbreaking ceremony on March 31, 2017 to commemorate the construction of its new Engineering Building at Tarleton State University. The ceremony continues Tarleton State’s year-long centennial celebration as a founding member of The Texas A&M University System.

Designed by Stantec, the $54 million, three-story project will provide much needed laboratory, classroom and administrative space. Heavy-use and high bay labs, classrooms and offices will be housed on the first floor. Innovative classrooms; a robotics lab; a prototyping lab; a fluids and materials testing lab — complete with flume and wind tunnel; computer labs and offices will be located on the upper floors. The facility will serve civil, electrical, environmental, and newly approved mechanical engineering programs as well as the engineering technology curriculums.

“This new building will put Tarleton State University’s engineering, engineering technology and computer science programs at the forefront of educational delivery for these disciplines,” said Texas A&M System Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs, Phillip Ray. “We are proud to be working with BE&K Building Group to construct such an innovative facility that will address both the university’s current needs as well as provide space and flexibility for future growth.”

The facility is projected to reach completion Fall 2018.
