Rajan Batta.

“A new building for the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences will provide stimulating, collaborative learning environments for all of our undergraduate students under one roof. Our alums know well that we have never previously had dedicated space for undergraduates to build and collaborate within the SEAS footprint, and I am very excited about the plans to provide such space for the next generation of SEAS students.”
