Construction continued in the late fall months to enclose the Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation with windows, walls and doors in preparation for winter, according to Facilities and Design Project Coordinator Allen Bradberry. The state-of-the-art building, at left, is on pace to open in fall 2013. Above, a 13,700-square-foot addition to Wilber Hall completed this summer includes this lounge.
SUNY Oswego will offer a new bachelor’s degree program in electrical and computer engineering starting next fall, coinciding with the opening of the Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation.
The new program is expected to help meet demand regionally and nationally for engineers in such cutting-edge fields as bioinstrumentation, robotics and power systems and in embedded systems such as microprocessors, which are omnipresent in machines and products from autos to refrigerators.
Dr. Barbara Palmer Shineman ’65, M ’71, professor emerita of education, sifts through memorabilia of her late husband, Dr. Richard S. Shineman.
