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 and the engineering dean 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 $25 million naming gift from Kiewit Corporation and the support of numerous other generous individuals, corporations and foundations, we are building Kiewit Hall.

Slated to open in 2023, the $115 million Kiewit Hall will serve as the academic hub for undergraduate engineering education and house Lincoln-based construction management programs; included will be classrooms, instructional labs, Engineering Student Services, maker spaces for the college’s student organizations, and a large outdoor plaza for the university community. 

The facility is being constructed on the east side of UNL’s existing engineering complex, east of Othmer Hall and across 17th Street, which is now closed to traffic. Once completed, the building will connect to Othmer Hall via a skyway, providing an expanded complex that also includes Scott Engineering Center, the Link, and Nebraska Hall.

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.
