The Florida Legislature passed a budget for FIU’s 2017-2018 school year,  which includes $52.6 million in new capital and operating funds for initiatives, programs and funding for two new buildings at the Modesto A. Maidique campus.


The budget includes $10 million for the new College of Engineering & Computing Complex. This money, as stated in an email sent to Student Media from the Office of Governmental Relations, will go towards the estimated $150 million construction cost, which is being funded through public-private partnerships.


FIU also received $12.7 million to complete what the email calls “phase II” of the Steven J. Green School of International & Public Affairs building.
