The New Chemistry and Biochemistry Laboratories

Rose Hulman Head of the Department of Chemistry Ross Weatherman shares an update on all the exciting hands-on opportunities students will get in the enhanced chemistry and biochemistry labs set to open with the new academic building in Fall 2021. Students will be using the same state-of-the-art equipment as professionals, such as a centralized vacuum pump and customizable gas delivery system, starting their first year. The connected space also allows for more interdisciplinary opportunities for undergraduate research.

The New Food Science and Engineering Laboratory

In Rose-Hulman’s new Food Science and Engineering Laboratory, students will learn science and engineering concepts about food, while also getting to eat and drink the results of their work in a way typical food science labs don’t allow! The lab will allow students to address important societal issues related to food production and distribution, sustainability and nutrition, as well as explore the scientific principals and engineering techniques used to create our favorite products like coffee, chocolate and more. Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering Adam Nolte shares more about this exciting new space.

Depth of Field Artwork

Standing at 30 feet tall, the "Depth of Field" artistic exhibit is located in the new academic building opening for the 2021-22 school year. Adam Buente and Kyle Perry of Project One Studio share the details of how this stunning interactive exhibit was created.
