Engineering Buildings


Stinson-Remick Hall of Engineering



Stinson-Remick, located on Notre Dame Avenue, is situated right across the quad from the DeBartolo classroom building and the Mendoza School of Business.  This 142,000-sq.-ft. building is home to state-of-the-art laboratories, Notre Dame’s new Energy Center, and bright, spacious study areas.  The building boasts several features of “green” architecture, and achieved LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.  Stinson-Remick is also where you will participate in your Introduction to Engineering class.  Other wonderful features of this building include Kitz Kafé, where you can grab sandwiches, soups, snacks, and drinks between classes, and the beautiful Holy Cross Chapel, where mass is celebrated daily at 7:30 am. 


cushing hall

Cushing Hall

Cushing Hall of Engineering was constructed in 1932. Today, it houses classrooms, laboratories, and faculty and graduate student offices.  The building was named after John F. Cushing, its principal benefactor, who donated $300,000 toward the construction of a new hall of engineering; the old one had been badly damaged during a 1928 fire.


Fitzpatrick hallFitzpatrick Hall of Engineering

Fitzpatrick Hall of Engineering was designed completely continuous with the Cushing Hall of Engineering. Two of the building’s five stories are under ground, and are considerably larger than those above ground. These bottom levels house many of the high-tech laboratories in the College. A total of 146,000 sq. ft., it is named for its principal donor, the Edward B. Fitzpatrick Jr. Family. It was dedicated in 1979.


HessertHessert Laboratory
for Aerospace Research

Dedicated in
1991 during
the University’s sesquicentennial activities, the 38,000-sq.-ft. Hessert Laboratory for Aerospace Research, named for its benefactors Thomas J. and Marilyn Hennebry Hessert, contains cutting-edge facilities, such as the Advanced Performance Compressor Laboratory, the Gas-Turbine Laboratory, the Aero-optics Clean Room, the Particle Dynamics Laboratory, the Plasma Flow Control Laboratory, an anechoic chamber, a Mach .05 low-disturbance wind tunnel, an atmospheric wind tunnel, a planar jet facility, high-speed supersonic and transonic wind tunnels, and dedicated machine and electronic shops.


McCourtney Hall

Opened in 2016, McCourtney Hall is a 220,000 square foot building dedicated to research in the molecular sciences and engineering at the University of Notre Dame. Researchers from two Colleges – Engineering and Science – have joined forces in the state-of-the-art building to tackle three key programmatic areas: analytical sciences and engineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, and drug discovery. From brain injuries to clean water, cancer treatment to sustainable energy and climate change, researchers within McCourtney Hall are working to discover new technologies in the face of the world’s grand challenges and to advance Notre Dame’s mission to be a powerful means for doing good in the world.

multidisciplinary research buildingThe Multidisciplinary Engineering Building

The 25,000-sq.-ft. Multidisciplinary Engineering Research Building, which opened in June of 2006, serves as the hub of the College of Engineering’s biomedical research activities. This facility houses laboratories for nano-mechanical characterization, biomaterials processing and characterization, cell and tissue culture, and tissue engineering. A tribology laboratory, tissue mechanics lab, manufacturing area, biomedical imaging lab, and histology and specimen preparation area are also part of the facility.


Wind Tunnel Turbine Compressor Building

WhitefieldA 10,000-sq.-ft., $1.9 million facility, the White Field facility is part of the Center for Flow Physics and Control. In addition to a new $3 million dollar wind tunnel that features an 8-ft. diameter fan and requires a 1,750-horsepower motor, the facility houses a $.5 million compressor (formerly housed in the Hessert Laboratory) and a new $1.8 million turbine. Construction was completed in January 2008.
