The Making of University of Michigan History

EECS Building open on North Campus...

North Campus gained some desperately needed classroom and office space with the opening of Engineering Building I, later renamed the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Building, and colloquially known as "EECS." The $30 million building designed by Smith, Hinchman & Grylls was the first fully state funded construction project in over two decades. Its central atrium soon became a popular student gathering place and site for official receptions. Equipped with state of the art labs and computer facilities, EECS set the stage for Engineering's move to North Campus.
