Our state-of-the-art labs, project space, classroom facilities and academic buildings are designed to let you focus completely on your research and learning. We believe in learning by doing, and our labs and research facilities are well suited for that purpose.
Learning & Research Facilities
New Academic Building
Opened in Fall 2021, Rose-Hulman's new 70,000-square-foot academic building has design studios, flexible classrooms, state-of-the-art chemistry, biochemistry and food science labs, collaboration workspaces, and faculty innovation spaces, along with an atrium featuring artwork that reacts to changing conditions within the building.
Branam & Kremer Innovation Centers
Teams huddle ahead of intense competitions, clubs unveil new innovations, and individual students tweak their latest projects in the Branam and Kremer Innovation Centers. The spaces are alive with activity, with wide-open workspaces where students collaborate across majors and bring their ideas to life.
Starting as a freshman, our MiNDs laboratory will give you opportunities in the area of semiconductor and micro/nano technology through courses and hands-on experiments in fabrication, characterization and modeling of micro/nano devices and systems. There are numerous professors performing state of the art research with undergraduates within the cleanroom year round.
Located just east of the main campus, Oakley Observatory is equipped for teaching, as well as conducting research in variable star photometry, searching for supernovae or searching for comets.
Rose-Hulman Ventures is a program that brings together students and technology-based companies. For students, the program provides the best engineering professional practice experience possible. In turn, this provides businesses with prototypes, refinements to the design of existing products and expansion in current engineering capabilities. The facility is on the south campus of Rose-Hulman.
