TERRE HAUTE -

Construction is underway on a new engineering and design laboratory at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. The $2.2 million building will provide design space, classrooms and laboratories to encourage hands-on experiences.

President Jim Conwell says the 13,800 square foot building is being built adjacent to the Branam Innovation Center because extra space was needed due to the popularity of the BIC. "“Students often proclaim that the BIC may be the best thing about Rose-Hulman,” the president said. “We are running out of room for all of the activity that students and faculty are generating. This new building will alleviate that pressure and help us separate larger, messier projects from smaller, ‘cleaner’ ones. I’m particularly excited that the co-location of classrooms and project space will support faculty in incorporating hands-on activities in their instruction.”

The building will also feature a new major- engineering design, along with a fluids laboratory and wind tunnel testing equipment. Construction is set to be done in November for use at the start of winter classes in the 2018-2019 school year.
