Carnegie Mellon University, ANSYS Hall
ANSYS Hall is designed to be a 36,000-square-foot, four-story facility for CMU’s College of Engineering. Funded by a gift from engineering simulation software company ANSYS, the project creates a hub for student making and features an indoor-outdoor maker-court for conceptualization and manufacturing of large-scale, functional prototypes. The building will also house the ANSYS Simulation Lab and research space, allowing the company to serve as a direct resource to students and contribute to the cross-pollination of ideas.
The building will act as a nucleus, bringing students together from multiple disciplines including engineering, art, design, business, and computer science in a hands-on setting that encourages the cross pollination of ideas.
Currently in construction, ANSYS Hall is scheduled for completion in summer of 2019.
