The Data and Decision Sciences Building (D&DS) is one of four buildings initiated in the Global Business Analytics Complex. The building will contain approximately 115,000 gross square feet to provide instructional spaces and student project spaces, bringing together students and faculty from across Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics, Business, and other programs that are increasing reliance and emphasis on data sciences, decision sciences, and data analytics.
About the project:
The 120,000-gross-square-feet Data and Decision Sciences Building will house faculty and classes from multiple colleges, including the College of Engineering, the College of Science, and the Pamplin College of Business. Its function is to bring together under one roof computer science, engineering, and data-related disciplines to provide opportunities for students, faculty, alumni, and even industry leaders to work side-by-side to address some of the world’s significant data challenges.
The Data and Decision Sciences Building’s features will include a multilevel commons area, team rooms in which students across disciplines can work together, specialized labs, data visualization classrooms, and more.
The building’s exterior will be clad in Hokie Stone and will reflect the Collegiate Gothic architectural style found across campus.
The facility will directly support the commonwealth’s Technology Talent Investment Program for growth in computer science and computer engineering sectors as well as other technology-based and cyber security industries.
