Case study: Transforming engineering education and research at UT Austin, Cockrell School of Engineering

UT Austin's recently completed, 430,000-sf Engineering Education and Research Center (EERC) is an outstanding example of leading-edge STEM environments with open and flexible space for active learning, hands-on student projects, research, and maker space for prototyping marketable products that solve real-world problems.  In this session you’ll see layouts, configurations, costs, new space types, adjacencies, equipment, and support facilities employed to inspire and recruit the next generation of engineers. Session leaders specifically examine the innovative National Instruments Student Project Center, an interdisciplinary undergraduate learning environment that is revolutionizing the way the Cockrell School teaches engineering.
