OFFICIALS of the Mariano Marcos State University inaugurated the College of Engineering Academic Building, one of several projects that aim to modernize the school.

The P23.8 million-structure will house the civil engineering department. It will also serve as a focus of transformational engineering research and impactful extension activities, according to COE Dean Nathaniel R. Alibuyog.

MMSU President Shirley C. Agrupis said that the new building will improve the delivery of engineering degree programs and assist the institution in preparing for the holding of limited face-to-face classes.

Agrupis urged the college’s faculty to “let this building become a model of automated, energy-sufficient, and resilient infrastructure.”

Pastor Marcial D. Gabriel, former faculty regent and minister of the Christ the Chief Cornerstone Christian Church, led the dedication of the new building.

The other MMSU projects include the establishment of the Soil and Water Laboratory, construction of the academic building (Phase 2), the Agricultural Machineries and Equipment Center building, the Integrated Engineering E-Learning and Multi-Technology Laboratory, and the Coastal Engineering and Management Research and Development Center.
