Materials Science and Engineering Building

Just to the left of the pool at the end of the mall is the oldest building on the engineering campus, finished in 1910. Prior to World War II, it was the original U.S. Forest Products Laboratory; today it's the Materials Science and Engineering Building, home to the college's Department of Materials Science and Engineering. In 1998, a two-year $4.6 million renovation gave the building a clean, new look. Now it houses state-of-the-art microscopy laboratories, with attached classrooms so students can view materials at the atomic level and beyond. And a working foundry — a testament to the college's long tradition of foundry research — occupies one large corner of the building.
