This feature is update monthly following the Boards of Regents
A four-floor, 100,000-square-foot Computer Science and Engineering Building will be designed by Diamond and Schmitt Architects of Toronto. To be built west of the Herbert H. Dow Building, the new building will provide offices, research labs, instructional space and common core facilities for the college's computer science and information technology activities. The estimated cost of the project is $40 million, which will be provided from the CoE reserves and gifts.
Space for the new undergraduate degree program in biomedical engineering will be provided after completion of a 38,000-square-foot addition and a 29,000-square-foot renovation to the Advanced Technology Laboratories building. The project will be designed by Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Partnership of Portland, Ore., and is estimated to cost $20 million. The money will come from CoE reserves, gifts and a grant from the Whitaker Foundation.
The Solid State Electronics Lab in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Building will be expanded and renovated. The lab, established in 1986, is in need of infrastructure updates and space for testing and prototype development. The $28-million project, to be designed by the SmithGroup of Detroit, will provide a new clean room and support space as well as architectural, mechanical and electrical improvements.
Once the three projects have been designed, the plans and construction schedules will be submitted to the regents for their approval.

• Donald W. Boys, associate professor of physics in the College of Arts and Sciences at U-MFlint, retired June 30. He taught courses that included introductory physics, electronic measurements, medical physics and solid state physics. He was responsible for introducing computer-based instruction on the Flint campus.
• Elizabeth A. Duell, assistant professor of dermatology in the Medical School, retired July 31. Her research focused on defining the normal control mechanisms in the epidermis to determine what abnormalities occur in various diseases, such as psoriasis. The goal was to provide specific and improved treatment of diseases of the skin.
• Daniel G. Green, professor of physiological optics in the Medical School, professor of electrical engineering and computer science and professor of biomedical engineering in the College of Engineering and professor of psychology in LS&A, retired Sept. 30. His electrophysiological studies are critical to understanding how humans see at night, during the day and in very bright light.
• Roger F. Meyer, professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences
in the Medical School, retired June 30. His research into more efficacious
treatment for corneal diseases and ocular surface disorders has improved
the quality of life and vision for people who are plagued with pain and
vision loss due to corneal injury, infection and cellular deterioration.
