College of Engineering / Giving to Auburn Engineering / Facilities


Shelby Center

We have implemented a multi-million dollar facilities plan that will continue to put Auburn Engineering at the forefront of engineering programs. It began with the renovation of Wilmore Labs and Ross Hall. The benefits of these projects are already evident as seen through the college's increased ability to recruit and retain some of the nation's top faculty and students, as well the significant expansion of major research initiatives.

The cornerstone of our facilities plan is the Sen. Richard C. and Annette N. Shelby Center for Engineering Technology, a state-of-the-art complex designed to advance engineering technology in a variety of areas.  

We invite you to partner with us to ensure the future of this complex and the exceptional engineering education that it makes possible. This flexible research and instructional space is essential to the strength of our research and graduate programs, as well as our undergraduate student project programs. There are a number of naming opportunities within the complex to recognize or pay tribute to individuals or companies. 

Named Facilities

The Auburn University Board of Trustees considers the naming of a university facility in honor of an individual or entity the highest recognition it can bestow. The board names buildings and other university facilities, in honor of those who have an exceptional record of service and/or contribution of a charitable gift to Auburn University.

Naming opportunities are available for:

  • Buildings, Sections, Floors of Buildings
  • Classrooms
  • Laboratories
  • Project rooms, study rooms
  • Lobbies, foyers, atria
  • Administrative suites, conference rooms
  • Outside area facilities, ponds, gardens, quadrangles, pavilions, amphitheaters
