Our Research Buildings
We primarily conduct research in the buildings:  Environmental Research (ERB),  Harry Morrison Civil Engineering (HML),  Charles P. Ruch Engineering (ENGR), and  Micron Engineering Center (MEC). We also use the campus Multipurpose Classroom building (MPCB), as well as City Center Plaza (CCP) in downtown Boise.
For academic lab and computing resources, see Engineering Computer Labs and Teaching Consoles.
|Open to university faculty, affiliates, industry, and entrepreneurs. Nominal fees may apply.
