Capital Projects and Planning

Current Campus Construction

Tennessee Tech is undergoing a level of construction that it hasn’t experienced since the 1960s. Projects include new buildings, the renovation of multiple buildings, parking lot construction, and infrastructure work. This website will provide updated information on construction projects. We appreciate your patience as we build the Tennessee Tech of tomorrow in order to better serve students.


New Buildings

 AI Engineering Building

Ashraf Islam Engineering Building

Tennessee Tech's new 100,000-square-foot engineering building is an investment in Tech as the state's only technological university. This new, modern facility will allow Tech to continue to provide a top engineering education and serve the students of the College of Engineering, which annually awards nearly a quarter of the total engineering and computer science degrees from Tennessee's nine public universities.
Along with classrooms and labs, the new facility will provide cross-disciplinary space that allows engineering students to collaborate on solving real-world problems. The new engineering building will create an engaging place to learn and conduct research for the engineers of the future.

Bruner Hall

The next building to be renovated as part of the University's Multiple Buildings Upgrades project is Bruner Hall. This renovation is similar in scope to what has been done to other academic buildings recently, such as Oakley, Kittrell, and Bartoo. Project scope include full-building mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and finishes upgrades.

The Derryberry Hall roof replacement project includes a replica replacement of the cupola. Other upcoming roof replacements include Lewis Hall, Southwest Hall, Varsity Building, Memorial Gym, and Military Science Building. Dormer replacement will begin on Bartoo and Kittrell as well.
