MSOE breaks ground on new $34M computer science facility

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Milwaukee School of Engineering is becoming a leader in artificial intelligence education.

The school broke ground a new multi-million dollar academic facility on Monday.

An MSOE alumnus is funding the project. Students earning a degree in computer science will take classes in cyber security, robotics, and other next-generation technologies in the building.

“Thanks to everyone here who’s supporting the MSOE team because you’re helping ensure that we have those generations with the skills to fill those positions and make Milwaukee and Wisconsin a great destination for many generations to come,” said Gov. Scott Walker (R) – Wisconsin.

The building will cost $34 million to build. It’s expected to open in 2020.
