Northeastern University Plans $227M Science, Engineering Research Center

BOSTON РNortheastern University hopes to break ground next month on a $225 million science and engineering research building, joining a growing list of Boston-area colleges and universities making major investments in those fields, according to The Boston Globe. NU President Joseph E. Aoun said the facility will help to meet a surging demand among students attracted to the majors and to accommodate a growing faculty. Over the past seven years, the university has recruited 387 tenured and tenure-track faculty, and its annual research funding has more than doubled, he said.
