Next Level Technology & Innovation
At the heart of our campus is the stunning Innovation, Science and Technology (IST) Building, home to some of the most advanced technology spaces in the country. Designed by world-renowned architect Dr. Santiago Calatrava, the IST is engineered for collaboration, research and education. Inside the IST Building are 26 classrooms and 11 Innovation Labs dedicated to researching topics like robotics, data visualization, 3D printing, big data analytics, cyber security, media production and entrepreneurship. The 11,000-square-foot Saddle Creek Logistics Commons houses the all-digital library, Academic Success Center and Technology Services desk. Classroom instruction is also facilitated by the latest interactive technologies and our student information systems keep students in constant contact with faculty, advisors, counselors and mentors on and off campus.
At the intersection of creativity and STEM is inspired learning. Don’t just learn from textbooks, be inspired to solve today’s problems for future generations.
