The new Micron School of Materials Science is a world class facility that showcases BSU’s unique materials science program, a research hub that will optimize connections to other programs and corporate partners. And, importantly, it is a gateway project for the program and University, as the cornerstone development in this new precinct of campus.

The research component of the building is organized into four neighborhoods supported by two additional components: the Instrumentation Suite and the Teaching Labs. The neighborhoods, each with their own identity, are organized around four core areas of research: DNA/ Bio-Nanotechnology, Materials Chemistry, Applied Electrochemistry and Thin Films.

Faculty/graduate working suites make up an important part of the program. Faculty suites were envisioned as an interconnected suite where communication and interaction between floors is optimized. These suites, separate from the research realm, define a  a place where faculty, students and business leaders can collaborate and interact–in essence, the living room for the researchers.

The educational spaces are a final major program component serving the entire campus as well as providing instructional space to the Materials Sciences program. The lecture hall and two large classrooms are envisioned to have the flexibility to operate independently from the rest of the building.
