Fitzpatrick Hall of Engineering was designed completely continuous with the Cushing Hall of Engineering. Two of the building’s five stories are under ground, and considerably larger than those above ground. These bottom levels house many of the high-tech laboratories in the College. Fitzpatrick Hall also houses departmental offices, classrooms, and a large computer cluster. A total of 146,000 sq. ft., it is named for its principal donor, the Edward B. Fitzpatrick Jr., family. It was dedicated in 1979.
