Acting on a vision for a catalyzed economy and a united community, this project will transform the original 1912 Albany High School into a state-of-the-art College of Engineering and Applied Sciences for the University at Albany.
To assist students and professors in conducting cutting-edge research, a new computational research laboratory will provide high-powered technology for the analysis of large-scale data sources.
On June 21, 2022, University at Albany announced a new initiative dedicated to artificial intelligence research. The program will leverage the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences to begin a new era of teaching and research that expands New York's capacity in this emerging field.
With CSArch as a partner, University at Albany is transforming the former 1912 Albany High School into a state-of-the-art College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The century-old, 160,000 sf space will receive full programming, design, and construction administration services to strengthen the region's only public research university and align its mission with the immediate community that supports it.
The historic rehabilitation of the building's three-story auditorium will be able to seat nearly 1,000 students, making it the largest auditorium on UAlbany's campus. Encompassing $80.1 million in renovations, the project will expand the size of UAlbany's downtown campus by about 40 percent and serve more than 1,000 students and faculty.
