To support the rapidly growing Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the University of Central Florida dedicated the newly constructed Harris Corporation Engineering Center in January 2007.
The new four-story, 100,000 square foot building serves as the home of the Departments of ECE and CS and its four academic programs: Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. The remarkable building is the crowning facility of UCF's engineering and computer science complex.
The Harris Center is located adjacent to the College of Optics and Photonics and Engineering I and II. Together with ECE in the new Harris Center, these facilities create a technology center on campus. The Harris Center contains educational and research laboratories, offices for both faculty and support personnel, collaborative space for research projects, support space for student advising, seminar and classrooms. It allows the department to upgrade student support services, research and teaching laboratories, as well as facilitate faculty and student interaction and advanced research.
There are still tremendous opportunities to support ECE and its remarkable new home through naming opportunities, scholarships and donations.
