It includes the 23,000 square foot National Instruments Student Project Center, designed to place the most advanced tools in engineering research into
the hands of undergraduates, the James J. and Miriam B. Mulva Auditorium and Conference Center, the Cockrell School’s largest event space, the Texas
Instruments teaching and project labs, and the Center for Innovation, the school’s first space dedicated to entrepreneurship and moving revolutionary
ideas to market at a faster rate. The building’s design, centered around the idea of “Transparency and Unification,” defines a new paradigm for engineering
education and research through the integration of undergraduate project-based learning, interdisciplinary graduate research, and a Center for Innovation
focused on entrepreneurship. Given the school’s strategic and programmatic needs, the building is organized into two nine-story limestone and glass
towers, acknowledging the substantially dierent requirements for labs, oices, and workspaces of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
and interdisciplinary
