From Tradition to Innovation
Centrally located on Notre Dame’s campus, Fitzpatrick Hall of Engineering and Cushing Hall of Engineering are contiguous spaces that feature:
- engineering teaching and research laboratories, classrooms and computer clusters, study spaces, and offices for graduate students
- Office of the Dean of Engineering (on the second floor)
- administrative offices for four departments: Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences, Computer Science and Engineering, and Electrical Engineering
Engineering Innovation Hub
Currently under construction on the first floor of Fitzpatrick Hall, the 10,000-square-foot Engineering Innovation Hub is dedicated to advanced manufacturing and filled with high-tech tools, manufacturing stations, and assembly and collaboration space and computing resources for students, faculty, and the regional manufacturing community.
This marquee facility will bring together leading-edge technology and expertise for an unparalleled student experience. Integrated with engineering research and coursework, the Engineering Innovation Hub will prepare Notre Dame students to devise novel solutions to practical and meaningful problems and take product solutions from concept to realization.
The Engineering Innovation Hub also will serve as outreach to the regional manufacturing community, proving local companies with access to technology and expertise.
The facility is associated with iNDustry Labs, the Notre Dame unit established in 2019 by an economic development grant from the Lilly Endowment.
Thomas Fuja, professor of electrical engineering, is the faculty director of the Engineering Innovation Hub.
