N.C. State University is digging in for the next phase of a major construction project.

The university will break ground on a new engineering building on Centennial Campus on Friday.

The Department of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering is gaining a $35 million facility with more than 200,000 square feet.

It will contain modern classrooms and state-of-the-art labs and offices.

The money for the project is a result of the $3.1 billion University of North Carolina Higher Education Bond Referendum< that passed in 2000.

Construction should be finished by 2005.
