Designed to meet the needs of our students and faculty for decades to come, the new Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering Building will reflect our deep commitment to excellence in engineering education and research, conveying to prospective students and faculty that Penn State is the best home for their work or study—the right place to bring their thirst for knowledge, their ideas and innovations, and their passion for teaching and learning engineering. That, in turn, will strengthen both departments and enhance their ability to have a positive impact on the world.
