Areas of Greatest Need
- General SHARE of ABE
David Eller ABE Teaching Building
Supports the construction, maintenance and furnishing of a building to provide classroom space for the AOM and BE programs for students to engage in experiential learning activities and explore design elements in engineering.
The proposed teaching building—positioned just north of the current AOM teaching building on the corner of Museum and Hull Roads—would consist of two hands-on, experiential learning environments. One classroom would replace the AOM hands-on construction classroom, while the second classroom would provide a much-needed space for BE design. The proposed new building would not only address the basic functionality described, but it would also provide the best teaching equipment to ensure students are prepared to compete and excel in the workforce.
