PEORIA (WEEK) – Bradley University dedicated their new Business and Engineering Convergence Center Friday. In a press release, the school said more than 300 faculty, staff, students, and alumni were there for the celebration.
While crews put the finishing touches on phase one, Bradley said the building will eventually house the Foster College of Business, Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology, and the Institute for Innovation through Collaboration; all at a cost of about $100 million.
Classes will move-in as crews finish classroom spaces. In addition, the Jobst Hall demolition will continue through 2020 to make room for the Convergence Center’s remaining wing.
When it’s complete, the facility will have 200 offices, 28 classrooms, eight computer labs, and 46 specialized labs. The school’s goal is to create a collaborative environment.
