On Wednesday, December 14, California Baptist University broke ground on their 100,000-square-foot building for the Gordon and Jill Bourns College of Engineering.

In what Dr. Ronald L. Ellis, CBU president, called a “wow” moment for CBU, Gordon Bourns, chairman and CEO of Bourns Inc., shared his excitement for the project based on the quality of students the College of Engineering has produced in their first ten years.

Design West Engineering has provided complete MEP design as well as fire sprinkler and fire alarm system designs in a unique plan that exposes MEP systems for use as teaching tools for the students.

The three-story building is targeted for completion in the summer of 2018.
