Marshall U. to break ground on complex for engineering

HUNTINGTON — Marshall University plans to break ground this fall on its new advanced Applied Engineering Complex.

The building will be named the Arthur Weisberg Family Applied Engineering Complex following a donation from the president of Huntington-based Arthur’s Enterprises.

The 145,000-square-foot facility will have classroom, laboratory, office and special applications spaces for the College of Information Technology and Engineering and science-related disciplines.

The Charleston Gazette reports half of the funding of the $50 million complex will come from the state Higher Education Policy Commission excess lottery funds. The rest will be funded by private donations and a bond issue of $52.1 million from last fall.

Officials say the new building will be a useful recruiting tool for students looking for modern facilities in science, technology, engineering and math programs.
