About Image

The Science and Engineering Building opened in the fall of 2009. Adjacent to Shelby Hall, the building features state-of-the-art teaching and research labs as well as collaborative space to encourage interdisciplinary work and student engagement. The new facility is U-shaped and similar to Shelby Hall in exterior appearance. The 212,000-square-foot structure connects to Shelby Hall on the northeast corner with first-floor access between the two buildings.


The Science and Engineering Building is home to the all freshman chemistry instructional laboratories; biological sciences teaching labs (including freshman and upper-level labs); parts of the College of Engineering, including faculty and students from the chemical and biological engineering, and computer science departments; science teaching labs for the College of Education; and space for the Science in Motion biology program. In addition, the building houses the administrative offices of the Department of Biological Sciences along with research facilities for faculty and students from the department.
