First Floor

Instructional Space

UD is known internationally as a leader in problem-based, hands-on learning. The floor includes one problem-based learning classroom and two instructional labs. Unlike traditional lecture halls, problem-based classrooms group students together at shared tables for easier discussion and collaboration.

With classrooms and instructional laboratories side-by-side in the building, students will move freely back and forth between both, avoiding the disconnect between lecture content and lab work that can occur in more traditional settings.

Research Space

Research labs and offices on this floor will be core, or shared, facilities for use by researchers from across campus and even from local industry partners. These include a 10,000-square-foot nanoprocessing clean laboratory, which will accommodate multiple researchers at the same time, the advance materials characterization lab, and a microscopy suite.

Community Space

ISE Lab's design incorporates many common areas to encourage students and faculty to share ideas outside the classrooms and laboratories, including the expansive, two-story lobby. It will serve as the principal entrance to the complex and offers an impressive gathering space for students, faculty, visiting scholars, business partners and alumni. This lobby will be a central location for presentations, social and networking events.

For information about naming opportunities in ISE Lab, contact Beth Brand, Associate Vice President of University Development, at 302-831-2104 or bgbrand@udel.edu.
