The University of Iowa College of Engineering has embarked on a major capital improvement project for a South Annex to the Seamans Center for the Engineering Arts and Sciences. The plan includes a $37 million, 65,000-square-foot addition that will adjoin the current Seamans Center and extend the complex southward, toward Burlington Street, Iowa City. Funding for the Annex will be a partnership among individual donors, corporate donors, the university, and college research centers.
The Annex answers a significant need for state-of-the-art facilities as engineering experiences significant growth: 2,120 undergraduates were enrolled in the college in 2014, a 77 percent rise from 2005. Meanwhile, engineering faculty continue to successfully compete for research funding, despite a competitive climate. Research expenditures grew to $56 million in fiscal 2013 from $29 million in fiscal 2004—a 94 percent increase.
