Derrama UTEP más de 160 millones de dólares en construcciones

15 de agosto de 2008.

La Universidad de Texas en El Paso aprobó a través de su mesa directiva los fondos por más de 130 millones de dólares para comenzar a construir sendos edificios que albergarán a cientos de estudiantes de ciencias médicas, enfermería, química y tecnologías de la información.

Diana Natalicio, Presidenta de UTEP, se mostró satisfecha pues la construcción de éstos edificios brindará un impacto económico y además permitirá fortalecer la planta docente al retenerla en El Paso.

La construcción de ambos edificios comenzará a finales del 2008 y generará un impacto muy positivo en la economía paseña, toda vez que la industria de la construcción es un detonador natural de otros sectores, según UTEP-IPED

Health Sciences/Nursing building

Long housed in the former Hotel Dieu School of Nursing a few blocks from campus, the College of Health Sciences and School of Nursing are eagerly anticipating the move to the new high-tech facility. The 135,000-square-foot building will house classrooms, research space and a state-of-the-art simulation lab to facilitate the training of new health care professionals.

The move will also improve students’ access to other campus facilities and services, and will strengthen opportunities for collaboration between faculty in health sciences and nursing and the university’s other colleges.

Construction on the $60 million facility on Wiggins Road at the site of the tennis courts is expected to be completed in 2010.

Chemistry and Computer Science Building

The $70 million Chemistry and Computer Science Building will provide researchers and students with expanded and upgraded classroom and lab space. Combining the two disciplines will create opportunities for collaborations, including computer-simulated chemistry experiments.

Funding for the project was provided in part by a $124 million allocation from the Board of Regents to help UTEP boost its research portfolio. The allocation was the largest single construction investment in UTEP’s history and also provided funding for renovations of existing science and engineering facilities and the completion of the Bioscience Research Building.

The Chemistry and Computer Science Building, located directly south of the Engineering Building Expansion, is expected to be completed in 2011.
