Grand Opening of the Biomedical Engineering Building

On August 29, 2019, we had our grand opening of the new Biomedical Engineering Building here at Discovery Park with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The 26,250-square-foot building houses open concept labs and classrooms to create a transparent and collaborative environment for cutting-edge research and learning. The $12.6 million biomedical engineering building provides faculty and students with modern classrooms, research labs, facilities for microscopy, cell culture and optics as well as teaching labs and a senior design lab.
