Computer Science and Calit2 Buildings To Be Unveiled

The Calit2 building is optimized for wireless communications, allowing line-of-sight signals to be transmitted into the building.
The CSE Building faces Warren Mall and is also home to the Warren College Provost office.
Workers assemble the “Bear” sculpture designed by artist Tim Hawkinson.

The Jacobs School 's footprint on the UCSD campus has grown decidedly with the construction of two new buildings for Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and for the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2). Both buildings will be ready for move-in this summer, and alumni and friends are invited to join building dedication festivities next fall.

The CSE building features an entire wing devoted to undergraduates, with hundreds of individual workstations, while graduate students are treated to rooms with views overlooking Warren Mall . Mark your calendar for the CSE building dedication on September 30. On the same day, the Jacobs School will unveil Legacy Walk, the School's commemorative paver program. Legacy Walk traverses the engineering courtyard just outside of the CSE and Calit2 buildings. Visitors will be able to read more than 350 paver inscriptions along the walkway. Topping off the day's celebrations is the premiere of the latest addition to UCSD's Stuart Collection of sculptures a two-story-tall, 270,000-pound teddy bear made of massive granite boulders. The bear sits regally at the center of the engineering courtyard.

The Calit2 building dedication will follow on October 28. Guests will be treated to tours of the building's unique laboratories such as new media arts facilities, including a six-walled, two story virtual reality theater, a rooftop antenna garden, and an industrial-grade clean room featuring a nanoscale fabrication laboratory.
