GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota has dedicated a new headquarters for its College of Engineering and Mines.

The $15.5 million Collaborative Energy Complex was built with about $4 million in state money and $10 million in private donations, including $5 million over five years from Hess Corp., a major player in the Bakken oil patch.

Construction on the 37,000-square-feet facility with state-of-the-art labs and multipurpose teaching centers started in July 2015. A dedication ceremony was held Friday.
