Fresno State officials broke ground today on a $24 million agricultural and engineering research center.
The 30,000 square-foot facility will host labs and foster collaboration among students and faculty in the university’s agricultural, engineering and science and math colleges.
The Jordan Research Center aimed at solving agricultural challenges will be located on the corner of Barstow and Woodrow avenues.
University officials say the state-of-the-art center was made possible by a $29.4 million dollar gift from the Jordan family to the College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology in 2009.
The center is scheduled to open in fall 2015.
