Three Exceptional Disciplines – The Advanced Materials Corridor and Engineering Education for the Future

Exponential Impact

Imagine the possibilities when our immensely talented faculty and students have access to a world-class facility—the discoveries they will make, the problems they will solve.

The Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex (BMEC) will house three exceptional disciplines—materials research from electrical engineering, materials science and engineering and biomedical engineering—all under one roof. Materials science and engineering will benefit from modernized facilities, while biomedical engineering will move from west to central campus, complimented by the materials research group from electrical engineering. BMEC is the foundation of the Advanced Materials Corridor where the College of Engineering will further develop the strength of the teaching and research relationship between engineering and medicine.

Showcase Teaching and Learning

Students at the complex will experience one of the best learning atmospheres in the nation. This will be evident to all who visit, as walls of windows in classrooms will put experiential teaching and learning on display. Brand new teaching laboratories for the department of engineering, partnered with maker spaces and hubs for industry collaboration allow students and faculty to think creatively and bring their innovative ideas to life with engineers from the private sector.  When faculty, students and industry come together, there is no limit to the innovation that is possible.
