Thayer School’s single integrated department of engineering sciences is housed in a single integrated facility that fosters innovation, community, and student-faculty interaction.
Connected by a soaring central atrium, MacLean Engineering Sciences Center and Cummings Hall place state-of-the-art student project labs at the heart of the combined building.
Large internal windows intentionally reveal the inner workings of engineering—allowing easy observation of works-in-progress in labs and workshops. For students and faculty, this can inspire new ideas and collaborations. For visitors to Thayer—from prospective students to non-engineers—the facility itself is a window into the ingenuity and creativity of engineering.
