UTEP starts work on new 100,000sq ft aerospace and manufacturing center

UTEP Starts Work on a Major Engineering Building

The West Texas campus began construction on the Advanced Manufacturing and Aerospace Center (AMAC)—an $80 million building that will provide research and educational space for the University of Texas at El Paso’s College of Engineering.

The four story, 98,000 square foot building is designed to match the campus’ Bhutanese-style architecture. The AMAC includes space for research and fabrication laboratories, administrative space and more. “Across the University of Texas System, we work to shape research and academic programming to align with emerging industry needs,” said UT’s James Milliken.

UTEP is a leader in additive manufacturing in a wide range of materials and techniques. The school has particular expertise in the use of laser-based metal additive processes as well as embedding electronics within 3D printed materials. In recent years, UTEP has completed advanced manufacturing research worth more than $100 million sponsored by NASA, the US Department of Defense and the National Science Foundations.
