Five buildings house the School of Engineering and Applied Science. At the center is the Engineering Quadrangle, or EQuad, a complex of connected wings with a courtyard, 25 classrooms, 120 laboratories, a machine shop, more than 125 faculty offices and study spaces, and a cafe. The engineering honor society, Tau Beta Pi, offers tours of the EQuad, and a self-guided tour handout is available outside room C-205. The EQuad's garden-like courtyard features several pieces of sculpture. The engineering school also includes Bowen Hall; the Computer Science Building, which connects to the Friend Center; and Sherrerd Hall.

Annual Steam Shutdown, 2019

Each year Facilities conducts a one-day campus steam system shutdown to safely perform necessary and routine maintenance. This year the scope of our work enables us to limit steam shutdowns to specific areas of campus. However, in the unlikely event of a safety issue, we may have to shut off steam to other parts of campus. In all cases, we will minimize the duration of the impact as much as possible. 

Chilled water interruption

An upcoming campus chilled water interruption may impact a number of campus buildings. Repair work on the chilled water lines that run along Shapiro walk will take place over the course of four days, starting Sunday, January 28, 2018.  

Chilled water is used for Air Conditioning and, in some cases, equipment cooling. Rooms with high occupancy, or areas with high concentrations of powered equipment may become warm during this outage. We appreciate your cooperation and patience.
