The West End District

The Class of 1982 Engineering and Computer Science Center (ECSC) is a significant expansion of Dartmouth's West End with research and teaching facilities including enhanced new homes for the Department of Computer Science and Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship. The West End brings together key drivers of human-centered impact—research, experiential learning, and tech-transfer support—and features flexible spaces for hands-on design, fabrication, and problem-solving, giving students from across Dartmouth an unsurpassed environment for learning by doing.
