Engineering Initiative update and paver campaign:

The Engineering Initiative

To attract new engineering students, meet rising demand, secure the School of Engineering's reputation as a world-class institution, Saint Martin's has launched an Engineering Initiative to raise $12.7 million. This will fund the new "green" building, Fr. Richard Cebula, O.S.B. Hall, that houses the Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering, as well as an industrial lab building  and a Dean's Discretionary Fund (endowment) to support the program. Cebula Hall offers new classrooms, and lab spaces that allow for an expanded engineering program while completing the first academic quad on Saint Martin's campus.

This Initiative is a new cornerstone to a growing campus — a transformational first step for the Marcus School of Engineering, the campus and the community as a whole.

What it means for:

The School of Engineering

Saint Martin's School of Engineering has earned its reputation as a top-tier engineering program. The new building will allow the program to attract more students and more faculty, and has capacity for new technologies in the new lab spaces. The new building will also allow Saint Martin’s to meet ABET accreditation requirements far into the future.

Saint Martin's University

The completion of the first academic quadrangle creates a place for students to gather, whether as an outdoor classroom, a performing arts venue, or even just as a beautiful setting to catch up on a good book on a spring afternoon.

The South Sound community

An expanded engineering program means Saint Martin's can meet the high demand for qualified engineers in both the public and private sector. Students, through their class work and internships, can test new ideas in partnership with local firms and governments. When they graduate, they will bring with them not only an excellent engineering education, but one grounded in Benedictine values.
