Tour Destinations

An enclosed glass walkway now attaches the Materials Science and Engineering Building to our next destination--the Engineering Research Building.

Engineering Research Building

The tallest building on the engineering campus at 13 stories, ERB houses a veritable cornucopia of engineering research. In the basement you'll find laboratories for the Engine Research Center, a federally funded facility devoted to making engines more efficient and powerful. Go up a few floors and you'll find research on gallium arsenide going on in the molecular beam epitaxy labs. Oh, and there are laboratories for solar energy research, plasma source ion implantation, nuclear engineering, and whew, you get the idea. It's also home base for the Department of Engineering Physics. (Fun fact about ERB: At the top floor is the best view on the engineering campus from the conference room known as 1307 ERB, where lovely Lake Mendota beckons outside.)
