Smart Energy Building

A State-Of-The-Art Research Center

The Chemistry Department moved into a new home, the Smart Energy Building, in the summer of 2017. This is a state-of-the-art $70 million, 114,000 square-foot research facility, which will accommodate research and development initiatives for the departments of chemistry and physics. The building includes space for faculty, students, and industry scientists and engineers to work side-by-side to create new energy and other cutting-edge technologies, and maintain and expand the regional workforce.
