New Building Groundbreaking Ceremony

Welcome to the University at Buffalo's Department of Computer Science and Engineering's (CSE) groundbreaking/alumni event web page! CSE has some exciting news to share with you about upcoming activities in April, 2009. You can Register online for any of these events.

This concept scheme shows the new $75M Engineering building viewed from the northwest. The edge of Ketter Hall is visible on the right, just west of the new building. In 2008, UB demolished the trailers that had occupied this site. Ribbon-cutting is scheduled for 2011.
