In his report, President Marrero discussed the $5.2 million that has helped with the funding of furniture, fixtures and equipment inside the upcoming Center for Engineering and Research.

Georgia Southern University President Kyle Marrero provided an update on the Center for Engineering and Research currently undergoing construction as well as planned construction with East Georgia State College at a faculty senate meeting April 3.

In his report, Marrero discussed the $5.2 million that has helped with the funding of furniture, fixtures and equipment of the building, which is set to open fall 2020.

“I know that makes science and engineering very happy to see that building coming forward,” Marrero said.

Two years ago, GS received the design money to move forward with the project, and received money for construction last year, Marrero said.

With the building still under development there are also plans to make EGSC more present on the GS campus.

EGSC recently received $3.5 million for renovation of the Nessmith Lane building. There are also plans for GS to have career services on the EGSC campus, Marrero said.

GS has also received funding from the house and senate for renovations of the Armstrong campus athletic center, which will help with student support and advising.
