Building from the future
From the elevator shafts to the window panes to the cutting edge labs, the engineering school’s brand-new, $56 million Jeong H. Kim Building is geared toward the university’s research mission.
Nanotechnology will be developed in clean rooms. These labs are completely free of dust and dirt to protect tiny nanotech structures. Air is filtered through numerous small holes in the floor. A “dirty room,” or chase, is closed off within the clean area. The chase is where machinery is kept to preserve the clean space, Fourney said. The clean rooms will also be used to research Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems. MEMS applications include airbag sensors and other automobile functions, Fourney said.
