In late 2018, the department moved into the newly renovated Aerospace Engineering Building. Features include updated and expanded research laboratories, including a state-of-the-art space object visualization lab, updated autonomous UAV and human-centered robotics labs, and collaboration zones for students and faculty. The main entrance features the McKnight Student Center — a well-lit open study space on the first floor of the building with a collaborative learning area, computer lab and student conference room. Improved undergraduate design and teaching labs also provide students with more experiential learning opportunities.
