Watch Us Grow: Breaking New Ground in Engineering Innovation
Tennessee Tech University’s is constructing its first new engineering facility in 50 years. The 100,000-square-foot, $62 million Ashraf Islam Engineering Building will anchor Tennessee Tech’s engineering corridor and fuse innovation, smart building technology and a living water laboratory to foster interdisciplinary and collaborative learning while inspiring new generations of engineers.
Designed to reflect the cross-disciplinary nature of the modern engineering workplace, the building will bridge artificial boundaries between disciplines to offer students the opportunity to apply their skills outside of the classroom to solve complex engineering problems.
The Tech community kicked off construction on September 10, 2021, with a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the history, legacy and future of the university’s flagship engineering programs and showing appreciation for donors and state support.
