The Demolition of the ENS Building [Watch]

The Engineering-Science Building, which has been a stalwart piece of the engineering quad for the last 50 years, is no more.

The aging building stood partially empty for years because the university couldn’t provide enough power for it, as Cockrell School Dean Sharon Wood told the Daily Texan in September. “We were trying to do cutting-edge research in a building that just couldn’t accommodate it,” Wood said.

The demolition of ENS—which housed the Cockrell School’s largest major, electrical and computer engineering—will make room for the $310 million, 430,000-square-foot Engineering Education and Resource Center, set to open in 2017.
