Engineering and Natural Sciences Building

Northern Arizona University's Industrial and Manuel Arts started offering undergraduate degrees in engineering in 1967, with emphases in civil engineering, electronics, mechanical engineering, and drafting. NAU began construction of the Engineering Building in 1971, spending $2 million on the project. The University later added computer science and engineering, engineering technology, construction management, and environmental engineering. In 2006, NAU modernized the building's appearance with a postmodern façade of glass. Only the southern end of the building retains its original look. The Engineering Building currently houses the College of Engineering, Forestry, and Natural Sciences and is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified building, marking it as efficient and sustainable.
