Health Sciences and Engineering construction updates

Health Sciences

The new Health Sciences building will be ready to use for the fall semester, which begins in less than four weeks. Work to convert what had been the home of Community Hospital into a new facility for the Department of Health Sciences began in early 2016.

The newly renovated building includes state-of-the art simulation labs, computer labs and classrooms as well as administrative offices. It will provide space to accommodate the growing Health Sciences programs. A ribbon-cutting is scheduled for Aug. 17 at 4:30 pm.

The Maverick Stampede practice field and storage facility near the Health Sciences building will be ready for the fall semester, too. The practice field and storage building are much needed by CMU's marching ban, which had grown to 155 members last fall.

Construction continues on the engineering building, which is CMU’s first building to front Seventh Street.

The new 68,700 square-foot building will house CMU’s engineering programs, including the civil and mechanical engineering programs delivered at CMU through a partnership with the University of Colorado Boulder. The building will also be the newest home for the John McConnell Math & Science Center.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by December 2017 with classes beginning in the new building in the spring of 2018.
