After a year of work, Cecil College's newest building is taking shape.
The Engineering and Math Building will measure 28,000 square feet. It will support the educational and training requirements of the high-tech industries, and their employees in Cecil County.
"Everything is on schedule for the building to be completed by the end of July and ready for our students at the beginning of the fall semester in late August," said Adam Kamras, Public Relations Coordinator for Cecil College.
Kamras said that most of the building's glass has been installed. Currently, workers are painting, working on the ceiling, and installing cables and wires in the interior. The entrance roadway work is underway. That work will continue through early May.
This building will provide space for expanding course offerings by Cecil in engineering, math, and physics. It will also help the college continue to promote the STEM initiative of beginning to prepare students for careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics while they are in middle school.
"We are very excited about the Engineering and Math Building and all of its green design elements and modern features, which will benefit our students," said Kamras.
