Local, state and federal officials will gather at the University of Houston at Sugar Land for groundbreaking ceremonies for the new UH College of Technology building. The 100,000-sq.-ft building will house classrooms and state-of-the-art laboratory space, as well as areas to accommodate industry partnerships.
Groundbreaking ceremonies are planned for 1 p.m., Friday, March 23 on the campus of UH Sugar Land, 14000 University Blvd. A reception is planned at nearby Brazos Hall.
“In building in Fort Bend County, the University is answering a call from students, employers and municipalities. The fastest growing large county in the country needs a Tier One University to provide a Tier One workforce,” said Jay Neal, Associate Vice President, Academic Affairs and Chief Operating Officer at UH Sugar Land. “Industry and students will benefit from the impact of this historic day.”
The new three-story facility, designed by Page Architects, will open in fall 2019. Construction Management and Engineering Technology programs will join other College of Technology programs already offered at UH Sugar Land.
The UH Sugar Land is an institute of the University of Houston, Tier One in Fort Bend County.
