Under Construction

New College of Engineering building comes to life – LIVE WEBCAM

New! Scroll down to the bottom of this page for a VR tour of the building based on the architectural plans.

Construction is officially underway on the new home of the T.J. Smull College of Engineering. Check out the current progress of the building site through the live webcam feed above.

The 105,000-square-foot facility will be nearly twice the size of the current 55,000-square-foot Biggs Engineering Building and will feature space for collaboration, class projects and community-building, helping ONU remain on the cutting edge of educating engineers who make a difference.
 
The new facility will be able to accommodate 600 students and will include more than 10,000 square feet of large-scale project and design space for capstone projects, competitive design projects and other direct industry engagement. Further, it will provide flexible space that can be adjusted to various projects and will feature more than 2,000 square feet for research labs that can exist on their own or can be combined into larger spaces for bigger projects.

The Campaign for Engineering: Building Impact at ONU has garnered immense support from donors, and naming opportunities are still available.
