Brown University breaks ground Thursday on a new engineering building on their Providence campus. The three-story, 80,000 square foot building will give the department its own home for the first time. Currently, engineering shares space with the physics department.
Brown President Christina Paxson said the new facility will allow the school’s research to expand in areas like nano-engineering.
“So this is looking at very, very small particles that have interesting applications from health to material science, to environmental science,” said Paxson.
