The Engineering 2 computer research facility houses academic research programs in computer engineering, computer science, and information systems and technology management.
It contains research laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, a 100-seat classroom designed as an experimental multi-media learning environment, and a 200-seat detached auditorium building.
Together with the existing Baskin Hall, the structures – arranged around new pedestrian plazas – form a new Quadrangle of Engineering. An efficiently run mechanical system and appropriate exterior skin building materials optimize energy performance.
