A new Bioengineering and Science Building provides state-of-the-art interdisciplinary teaching and research laboratories, laboratory support spaces, faculty and student offices and administrative offices. The highly flexible building, which was designed in partnership with ZGF Architects LLP, houses Bioengineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Neurosciences, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
The LEED Gold certified facility combines both academic and research space, creating a dynamic home for learning and discovery. It houses flexible, multidisciplinary research laboratories and classroom space for the School of Natural Science and Math, School of Engineering and Computer Science and the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences. The building was designed to focus on learning and research of the functions of the brain, the nervous system, the cell, the gene, and the disciplines of science and engineering as they relate to the improvement of human functions and electronic sensing devices. The high-tech facility also provides research space for 70 faculty members and their staff members and graduate students, along with teaching laboratories for undergraduate majors in these fields.
Connective and collaborative spaces within the building facilitate engagement between students and with faculty. Laboratory flexibility is enhanced with standardized system criteria for ventilation, power, communications, distributed utilities, and finishes.
