Outdoor patio of Physical Sciences and Engineering Complex

Physical Sciences & Engineering Center (PSEC)

Construction Project

Construction of the Physical Sciences & Engineering Science (PSEC) began in February 2011 by the Bay Area's Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company.

The project, which cost $41,576,000, was funded by Measure C — a $490.8 million bond approved in 2006 by voters residing in the Foothill-De Anza Community College District service area.*

The project included complete reconstruction of Parking Lot 4 and site improvements around a new three-building complex.
The PSEC buildings opened in January 2013 and house the Foothill College Science Learning Institute.
