Creating fertile ground for fortuitous partnerships is what’s behind SDSU’s new Engineering and Interdisciplinary Sciences (EIS) Complex, scheduled for completion in 2018. The complex will provide new cutting-edge labs and working spaces cultivating the problem-solvers of tomorrow. The EIS Complex is a key piece in SDSU’s drive to become a top-50 public research university. Not only will it enhance the university’s current teaching and research capacities, it will also boost SDSU’s ability to attract the best and brightest researchers and graduate students.
A new $5.1-million gift to San Diego State University from the Moxie Foundation will strengthen the university’s capacity to prepare students for bold and innovative problem-solving in the 21st century. The gift from the San Diego-based foundation, which has worked with SDSU over the past four years, will expand the Zahn Innovation Platform, create an innovation prize for graduating seniors and create a two-year rotating faculty post dedicated to creativity.
