One of the world’s top engineering schools has a freestanding building for its graduate and its first undergraduate biomedical engineering program. It houses the new Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering and its design was created hand-in-hand with the new program’s curriculum. The space adapts to the interdisciplinary and ever-changing nature of science and research. It accommodates a threefold increase in faculty and serves as a gateway to Purdue’s new Discovery Park.
Specialty areas in the building include optics labs, projects labs, microscope rooms, tissue culture labs and interaction spaces that foster communication among students and faculty. With 18 teaching and research laboratories and collaboration with other institutions and life science entities, the facility helps Purdue continue its leadership in advancing medicine.
