MANHATTAN, Kansas — An Arizona couple has given Kansas State University $1.5 million toward the expansion of the College of Engineering.

The university announced the gift from Tucson residents Alan and Jan Levin on Tuesday. The Levins are natives of Kensington, Kansas, and own Century Park Properties LLC in Tucson.

The donation will help complete the fourth phase of the $45 million expansion of the engineering college. The project will consolidate operations now spread among multiple campus locations.

Kansas State hopes to finish the expansion by the fall of 2015. The university says the Alan and Jan Levin Student Design Team Suite will offer space for design competitions.

Alan Levin earned a degree in mechanical engineering from Kansas State, and Jan Levin worked for K-State Research and Extension.
