$70M Earmarked for National Security Collaboration Center, Data Science School
The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) received a $70-million commitment from the UT Board of Regents to build two facilities at its downtown campus. The two facilities, which will house the National Security Collaboration Center and School of Data Science, will total 217,000 square feet.
The $33 million National Security Collaboration Center will comprise 80,000 square feet of innovation space, laboratories and research facilities and will serve as a hub for government, university and industry partners in the cybersecurity field. Several prominent businesses including Parsons, Raytheon, Booz Allen Hamilton, Noblis and Accenture have expressed their intentions to join the NSCC.
Meanwhile, the $57 million School of Data Science building will comprise 138,000 square feet of classrooms, laboratories and research space. UTSA is planning to seek approval from the Board of Regents and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to formally establish the school.
