New UCI Convergent Sciences Building to Fuel Major Innovation and Research
A gift from the Samueli Foundation will help fund a state-of-the-art convergent science building, expanding the University of California, Irvine’s ability to conduct large-scale, collaborative and cross-disciplinary research in engineering, computing, and physical sciences.
In a significant private-public partnership, the Samueli donation has enabled the university to obtain $50 million in state funds allocated by the UC Office of the President. An additional $40 million in UCI funds brings the total budget to $120 million. Construction of the up-to-100,000-square-foot facility could begin as early as this fall and be completed in three years.
