Moench Hall is the main academic building. It houses Electrical & Computer Engineering, Optical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Software Engineering, Engineering Management, and Humanities & Social Sciences. Undergraduates have an opportunity to work in advanced settings like the micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) lab, which is set up for a clean environment. The Studio Circuits Laboratory allows a combination of classroom instruction and lab work in the same room. These are just two examples of the innovative, state-of-the-art learning environments in Moench Hall.
In addition to the classrooms, Moench Hall is also home to the Admissions Office, the Business Office and the Administrative Services Department. Opened in 1922, it is the oldest building on campus and named after Herman Moench, alumnus and long-time teacher and administrator.
