The Universities at Shady Grove opened the $175 million Biomedical Sciences and Engineering Education Facility in November of 2019 in Rockville, Md. Supporting programs in engineering, biotechnology, cybersecurity, and healthcare, the collaborative 220,000-sf building houses 10 teaching labs, 12 active learning classrooms, two 120-seat lecture halls, maker spaces, a product design lab, academic offices, an atrium, and an entrepreneurship hub. The six-story project offers clinical training areas including a dentistry center with four surgical suites and 20 operatory stations. LEED Platinum certification will be sought for the sustainably designed facility, which features advanced building systems to optimize energy and water performance. The Biomedical Sciences and Engineering Building was designed by Cooper Carry and Lake Flato. The Universities at Shady Grove is a regional campus of the University System of Maryland that offers degree programs from nine public universities.
