The CoorsTek Center for Applied Science and Engineering establishes an epicenter for the College of Applied Sciences and Engineering (CASE), promotes interdisciplinary work, and fosters collaboration. The largest user within the new building will is the Physics Department that previously resided in Meyer Hall and other space distributed around and off campus. The new building replaces Meyer Hall facing Kafadar Commons, the prime central green space on campus. Additional CASE labs will house collaborative research and allow for interaction between disciplines that leads to new innovations.

In addition, the public space of the building is designed to foster interaction and collaboration in both informal, spontaneous ways, as well as in a formal research context. This spirit of collaboration extends from the academic world to the private sector, with CoorsTek joining the team as a major donor for the project and a collaborator on overlapping fields of research. The building will be a magnet for new researchers who will be able to capitalize on both the laboratory facilities as well as the resident faculty and students.
