Revolutionizing Education: $45 Million New Academic Building at Texas A&M-Texarkana to Boost Business, Engineering and Technology Programs.

Texarkana Breaking Ground on New Business, Engineering, and Technology Building at Texas A&M

Texas A&M Texarkana has recently secured funding to build a new $45 million academic building that will house programs in business, engineering, and technology. The groundbreaking event for the new building will take place on May 30, and it will be located on the southwest side of the university’s campus.

The three-story building will be over 50,000 square feet and will connect the existing science and technology buildings via walkways on the 2nd and 3rd floors. It will include the Center for Financial Literacy and Investment, laboratories for mechanical engineering and design, and a 255-seat lecture hall/auditorium. In addition to these features, updates have also been made to existing spaces in the current Science and Technology building, including laboratories for the electrical engineering program.

A&M-Texarkana President Dr. Ross Alexander expressed his gratitude to the state legislature, Rep. Gary VanDeaver, Sen. Bryan Hughes, Chancellor Sharp, and the A&M System Board of Regents for their support in funding this new facility. He noted that this new building would provide opportunities for interdisciplinary study and research, creating synergies in high-impact fields to support state-of-the-art learning and provide skilled employees to businesses in East Texas and beyond.

Funding for this construction project was secured during the 87th legislative session in 2021. The completion of this new Business, Engineering, and Technology building is expected to play a significant role in the growth and momentum of Texas A&M University-Texarkana as it continues to expand its offerings in these critical fields.
