Mountbatten future becomes reality in 2008

Southampton, UK | Posted on January 9th, 2008

As work proceeds with rapid pace on the building's striking external finishing, contractors are busy inside on the complex workings that will control the clean room environments. The £55 million building, which is due for completion in July 2008, will provide a world-class facility that will allow the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) and the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) to make leading-edge contributions to new research areas in nanotechnology and photonics.

The state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary facility has been designed specifically to meet the long-term research needs of ECS and the ORC, and contains a large purpose-built clean room and associated laboratories, along with offices and meeting spaces.

'The technology which will be available in our new building, coupled with our high-quality academics, students and support staff, will enable us to develop faster, smaller, lower-cost, lower power, more environmentally-friendly devices for the next generations of electronic products whilst continuing our pioneering work in computer science,' said Professor Harvey Rutt, Head of ECS.
