Riverside — California Baptist University celebrated a topping-off ceremony to mark the placement of the symbolic final steel beam on its 100,000-square-foot engineering building on May 23.

The new building will house the Gordon and Jill Bourns College of Engineering. It will feature a three-story layout that is targeted for completion in the summer of 2018. Plans for the innovative building design will feature two blocks of classroom, faculty and administrative space bracketing a massive engineering hall, providing multipurpose space for labs, projects, exhibits, presentations and student collaboration, as well as an interactive studio for K-12 STEM education.
