Harvard Engineering School to move to Allston

Harvard University plans to move much of its School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to its expanding campus in Allston, university president Drew G. Faust announced. The school would relocate to the planned science center complex, which is expected to be completed by 2017, university officials said. Prior versions of the plan called for stem-cell research to be an “anchor component” of the complex, alongside programs in engineering and the physical, biological, and life sciences. University officials said life sciences, which includes stem-cell sciences, will remain an integral part of the complex, but to a lesser extent than previously planned.
