The 220,000 GSF facility is equipped with 20 teaching labs, 12 active learning classrooms, two 120-seat lecture halls, academic and student affairs offices, faculty offices, and clinical training facilities including a community dental practice. A maker space and product design lab support research and commercialization activities.
