Kansas State University, Engineering Complex Phase IV
Kansas State University
Project size: 99,000 square feet
The Kansas State University College of Engineering Phase IV Expansion project combines science, theory and technology in an atmosphere of innovation and collaboration. The project is an addition to the three existing buildings of the engineering complex, dated from 1979 to 2000 and located on the southwest edge of the campus. The project consolidates functions previously dispersed over multiple locations and ties the entire complex together as one, creating a flexible environment to inspire and support interdisciplinary learning. Near the historic core campus, the Phase IV expansion project forms a gateway between the traditional campus quad and the residential areas to the west, putting the College of Engineering research and discovery on display for students, faculty, and visitors.
The project expresses the mission of the College of Engineering by exhibiting a strong commitment to future excellence through an expanded presence, enriched environment, competitive image, and increased emphasis on the brand. The departments of Computing & Information Sciences, Electrical & Computer Engineering and Civil Engineering relocated to the new Phase IV building in addition to the general College teaching spaces and laboratories.
