Construction officially began in January for the West End of campus for the new integrated engineering, computer science and entrepreneurship facility at Cummings lot at the Thayer School of Engineering. 

Participating in a ceremonial groundbreaking recently were Terry McGuire Th’82, chair of the Thayer Board of Advisors; Christine Cook, Thayer’s chief financial and administrative officer; Laura Ray, interim dean at Thayer and a professor of engineering; David Kotz, the Champion International Professor in the Department of Computer Science; Liz Cahill Lempres ’83 Th’84, Dartmouth trustee and Thayer Board of Advisors member; and Provost Joseph Helble.

The $200-million project, funded entirely through gifts to the College, will integrate experiential learning in engineering, computer science, and entrepreneurship to be shared by Thayer School of Engineering, the Department of Computer Science, and the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship. The Dartmouth Electron Microscope Facility will also be housed in the building.
