Vanderbilt’s newest classroom and research facility, the Engineering and Science Building, opened to students Aug. 24.

The 230,000-square-foot seven-story building is designed to foster project teamwork and offer programs, instrumentation areas and core research space that will promote interdisciplinary work, particularly in engineering and related fields. It connects to one of the School of Engineering’s landmark buildings, Olin Hall, through a double-height atrium. The building is part of an effort to further strengthen Vanderbilt’s growing reputation as a major producer of intellectual leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators.

Construction on the building began in May 2014. It also will house an Innovation Center, scheduled to open later this fall.
