Intended to exploit the
latest achievements in digital interactive technology, all
classrooms and laboratories will be wired for Internet access
and audio-visual presentations. The major lecture halls will
have digital conferencing hardware and software for
distance-learning capabilities. The 250-seat auditorium,
125-seat lecture hall, two 60-seat classrooms, and two 35-seat
classrooms will be equipped with power and telecommunications
ports at every seat.
Research labs are designed
for a multidisciplinary environment. All research areas and
faculty offices have windows. Passages between labs are used to
foster interaction and a sense of openness. Natural woods in the
labs and classrooms soften the spaces.
