Texas A&M University-Texarkana is preparing to break ground on a $45 million academic building to house the university’s growing engineering, and technology programs

The university says the three-story building will have just over 50,000 square feet in space and will be situated on the southwest side of the Texarkana campus. The new building will connect to the existing Science and Technology Building via walkways on the second and third floors.

The building, designed to support growing demand for degrees in business and technology-related fields, will house the Center for Financial Literacy and Investment, numerous laboratories for mechanical engineering and design. It will have a 225-seat lecture hall/auditorium to support large lectures and other events.

“The new Business, Engineering, and Technology building will bring numerous opportunities for interdisciplinary study and research; creating synergies and allowing us to leverage these high-impact, in-demand fields in innovative ways,” said Melinda Arnold, Texas A&M University-Texarkana Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.
