UNLV Unveils New Advanced Engineering Building: A Hub of Innovation and Growth

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) proudly unveiled its newest landmark, the Advanced Engineering Building (AEB), on February 23.

This momentous occasion marks the culmination of over a decade of meticulous planning, innovative design, and dedicated construction efforts.

Touted as the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering’s “incubator and innovation generator”, the newest addition to the campus will provide much-needed space for the fastest growing college at UNLV, having experienced a 75% increase in undergraduate enrollment since 2009.

Located strategically within the University’s renowned “Innovation Corridor,” the three-story, 52,00-square-foot AEB is poised to serve as a dynamic hub for interdisciplinary collaboration and exploration. Equipped with open-concept laboratories, a first-floor Maker Space, a versatile “flexatorium,” and an outdoor “drone aviary,” the building offers a conducive environment for pioneering research in fields such as robotics, cybersecurity, biomedical engineering, energy and water, artificial intelligence, and more.

The AEB will facilitate the interdisciplinary collisions and research collaborations that will solve community and national problems,” stated Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering Dean Rama Venkat.

The project was designed in association with SmithGroup and constructed by CORE Construction.

Classes are scheduled to begin in the AEB in Fall 2024.
