Zachry Group donates $25 million to A&M's Dwight Look College of Engineering

Texas A&M announced Tuesday morning that a longtime financial supporter of Aggieland - the Zachry Group, a San Antonio-based construction and engineering company - has made a $25 million gift to the Dwight Look College of Engineering.

The project will renovate the 43-year-old, 350,000-square foot Zachry Engineering Center and expand to 550,000 square feet to become the hub of the college’s undergraduate program.

According to a university press release, the donation will support the construction of the Engineering Education Complex (EEC), establish the Zachry Leadership Program and the Zachry Group Professor of Practice position in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

“We are humbled and honored to receive such a significant investment in our future,” A&M Engineering Dean Kathy Banks said. “On behalf of Aggies everywhere, I would like to applaud the Zachry Group for its leadership and support. This generous gift will be transformational, impacting students in many ways.”
