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. 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.
The three general instruction classrooms on this floor, each accommodating 40 students, will be ideal settings for interdisciplinary classes that do not require laboratory space. They include the latest in educational technology and mobile furniture allowing for flexibility of seating arrangements to suit group or individual work.
The third floor of the research wing will be dedicated to energy research, with labs, dedicated offices and a large graduate student work area.
The Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) will occupy much of the floor. Working in teams that pair faculty with students, CCEI is unraveling the science of converting biomass into fuel. CCEI is funded, in part, by the U.S. Department of Energy as an Energy Frontier Research Center, a federal initiative charting the future of energy in this country.
A large graduate student open office area, designed to foster collaboration, occupies the center of the floor. And, In addition, one large, open lab space will accommodate three research teams from three different departments. This proximity allows for improved interdisciplinary exploration.
