Santa Barbara State College -- Industrial Education Unit


This image is a photograph of a rendering of the Industrial Education Unit for the Leadbetter Mesa campus, designed by Alfred Eichler. It was the first building built on the site for the Santa Barbara State College expansion, and was used from the early 1940s until the campus moved to the Goleta Mesa in 1954.

It is now part of the Santa Barbara City College, and houses the administration building, the MacDougall Administration Center.
