The University of Denver's five-story, $60 million STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) building that houses the Engineering and Computer Science School officially opened Friday.

The 110,000-square-foot space includes communal spaces, a machine shop and classrooms for things like mechatronics systems engineering, robotics and bioengineering. It also will house the new Knoebel Institute for Health Aging.

The new building is named for the father of Daniel Ritchie, the former university chancellor from 1989 to 2005, who donated $15 million to the school in 1994 and another $50 million later on, all through the sale of his 19,600-acre ranch.
