Kiewit-UNL partnership power Nebraska Engineering forward

On Sept. 26, 2019, the chairman and chief executive officer of Peter Kiewit Sons’ Inc. joined with the chancellor of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln to announce the Omaha-based corporation’s support of a significant expansion of the College of Engineering.  

With a $20 million naming gift from Kiewit Corporation and the support of numerous other generous individuals, corporations and foundations, we are building Kiewit Hall (to be located on the corners of 17th and Vine Streets on City Campus). Opening in the Fall of 2023, the $97 million Kiewit Hall will be a state-of-the-art engineering building that will enhance our ability to provide our students with world-class engineering educations and help us meet the workforce needs of the state and the region.

Most recently, in partnership with senior executives and University of Nebraska alumni at Kiewit Corporation, we have created the Kiewit Scholars Program - a full-tuition scholarship combined with a rigorous leadership program that will support 40 undergraduate students. This program is unparalleled among our Big Ten and other top-ranking colleges of engineering.
