CSC Facilities - Engineering Building II (EB II)
In the fall of 2006, the Department of Computer Science moved into the new $46 million, 210,000 square foot Engineering Building II on Centennial Campus – a state-of-the-art teaching and research facility which will benefit our faculty and students for many years to come.
Computer science teaching and research space and offices are located in the east wing of the building; the College of Engineer's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is located in the west wing.
Our new building provides more than a change in location. It offers the opportunity - through naming rights opportunities - to help advance the department's efforts in academics and research by elevating the levels of support available for enhancing existing programs and exploring new initiatives.
While state funds approved in a bond referendum several years ago covered the basic construction costs of EBII, NC State's Board of Trustees has approved a Naming Rights plan which provides opportunities for both corporations and individuals to help support the academic and research mission of the department through major gifts.
Qualifying contributions will be recognized with the naming of areas within the new building, including offices, labs, classrooms, conference rooms, and common areas, or the entire building. Flexible giving options are available, including multi-year pledges as well as combined outright and deferred gifts.
The primary goal of naming rights opportunities is to help grow NC State's endowment levels, a key factor in national rankings.
University guidelines require that 50 percent of a qualifying donation be allocated toward an unrestricted endowment. The remainder can be added to an existing cash fund or endowment, or it can be used to create a new endowment aligned with the donor's interests and the department's most critical needs, such as professorships, graduate fellowships, scholarships, etc. The naming rights program offers a unique multi-legacy gift opportunity for our donors, who in turn will be recognized over time with a permanent named space in the new building.
Several premier conference rooms, labs, and common spaces have already been named within EBII, but many affordable options remain available.
