With the construction of two new teaching and research buildings on West Campus, a new hub of engineering activity is taking shape at University Park; one where students, faculty, alumni, staff, and members of industry can converge and collaborate.

West 1
The Engineering Collabortive and Research Education Building will be the new hub of engineering academics and student services.
Engineering Design and Innovation Building

The University Park campus is situated next to the quintessential college town of State College, in a region of Pennsylvania affectionately known as Happy Valley. It's a place that makes an appearance on many "best" lists because of its friendly atmosphere, rich connection to education, natural resources, and strong economy. And it's the perfect spot to engineer what's next.
