It will profile a sequence of science and engineering facility projects that empower programs and produce market-ready graduates. It will also provide key details of master plans for science and engineering initiatives, multi-discipline teaching labs, student-focused interdisciplinary research facilities, and more: the whole laundry list of cutting-edge buildings and spaces you’ll need to move your programs forward in the coming 5- to 10-years. This talk with feature 3 Ennead projects that have been completed at Purdue in the last 5 years - The Flex Lab Facility, Chaney-Hale Hall of Science, and Dudley & Lambertus Halls Engineering and Polytechnic Gateway.
