UCSC ENGINEERING BUILDING

The Engineering 2 computer research facility houses academic research programs in computer engineering, computer science, and information systems and technology management. It contains research laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, a 100-seat classroom designed as an experimental multi-media learning environment, and a 200-seat detached auditorium building. Together with the existing Baskin Hall, the structures – arranged around new pedestrian plazas – form a new Quadrangle of Engineering. An efficiently run mechanical system and appropriate exterior skin building materials optimize energy performance. Designed and constructed to a funding mandate requiring a highly accelerated schedule, Engineering 2 was delivered on budget and 12 months ahead of the original schedule.
