All Set for ISET
The chemistry department moved in earlier this week, and the departments of biology and physical therapy will be settling in over the next few days, according to ISET Project Manager Craig Wilbur. The departments of math, physics, and computer science, along with several engineering departments, are scheduled to move next week.
A few Summerterm classes are already being held in the new building. “The building is fully operational,” Wilbur said.
Together, the new, 37,000-square-foot building and the renovated east wing of Dana Hall comprise Phase I of the ISET (Integrated Science, Engineering, and Technology) project. Phase II, which involves the renovation of the west wing of Dana, is scheduled to begin on June 1 and be completed in January 2006.
The ISET project — the largest single construction project in the university's history — will enable all of the university's science, engineering, and technology departments to be housed together in a complex of state-of-the-art buildings that encourage collaboration and interdisciplinary learning.
The project supports the university's goal of achieving regional prominence and national visibility in science, engineering, and technology education.
