A New Home for UAlbany's New College of Engineering and Applied Sciences

ALBANY, N.Y. (February 26, 2016) -- Capital Region leaders are unified in their support for the University's plan to transform a century-old former public school building into a home for its new College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS). The capital funding would finance the first phase of the project, which will turn the one-time Albany High School building adjacent to UAlbany’s downtown campus into a state-of-the-art engineering school building.

Locating CEAS in the middle of the City of Albany marks the next phase in a deepening partnership between the Capital Region's comprehensive public research university, its home city and the larger region.
