Designed to meet LEED “Gold” standards, this striking new building houses the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences' Computer Science and Electrical Engineering programs.

A new, 130,000-square-foot classroom and laboratory building for the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is now helping to accommodate rapid growth in the school and support job-generating research and translation in engineering fields. The building is home to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the Department of Electrical Engineering, both of which play key roles in advancement of research in “strategic strengths” fields of information and computing technology, and integrated nanostructured systems. The $75 million, LEED-Gold facility was designed by architects Perkins + Will. It features a 5,000-square-foot clean room and state-of-the-art “cybertorium,” or “smart” auditorium, as well as flexible research labs, classrooms and meeting areas to foster interdisciplinary work.
