On May 20, 2011, the Jacobs School helped celebrate a construction milestone for the UC San Diego Structural & Materials Engineering Building / EBU IV: reaching the building's highest point.

At the "topping out" party, those constructing the building and many of its future inhabitants gathered to sign a final beam (pictured, being hoisted in the air). The signed beam will be permanently placed in a public spot within EBU IV, which will house Structural Engineering, NanoEngineering, and the Center for Medical Devices and Instrumentation, as well as Visual Arts facilities.
