School of Computing
To help meet the growing need for professionals in areas such as hardware and software development, networking and information technology, Trine University will launch its new School of Computing in the fall of 2019. The School of Computing will encompass current Trine programs in computer and software engineering as well as a revitalized computer science and information technology major that will feature new tracks in the increasingly important fields of cybersecurity, health informatics and web development.
The new academic school eventually will be housed in a planned $8.5 million expansion to Fawick Hall on Trine University’s main campus in Angola. Current designs for the expansion include an airy, glass-walled exterior that will make a striking addition to the heart of the Trine University campus. The expansion also will feature:
- state-of-the-art technology supporting new classrooms and labs, including an artificial intelligence/virtual reality lab;
- movable walls in some classroom areas to allow for greater flexibility;
- an active learning lab with a maker space to foster creativity;
- expanded faculty office space; and
- bright, open spaces for collaboration and conversation, including a new gathering point and cafe available to the entire campus.
