Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering (ARMS)
"Rise Above The Rest"
As the academic and physical gateway to Purdue Engineering, Armstrong Hall will be where many take their first steps to become engineers. With the School of Aeronautics & Astronautics set to move into the building in the summer of 2007, the Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering is rapidly on the rise.
Armstrong Hall is designed to provide the unique educational and research facilities dedicated to teamwork, hands-on learning, building community relationships, and establishing interdisciplinary connections necessary for educating the next generation of engineers. The building will have 109,000 assignable square feet, including more than 20,000 dedicated to research labs and more than 60,000 for undergraduate teaching facilities and discipline-specific design labs. Armstrong Hall will feature learning spaces in eight classrooms that will facilitate student teamwork, especially for design studies, one of the most important facets of engineering education.
A key feature of Armstrong Hall is the concept of Team Learning Modules (TLM), which will allow students to experience the entire engineering life cycle. This concept addresses a common theme emanating from our alumni and industry advisers. Industry is demanding engineers who have traditional technical expertise along with design-and-build experience, often on industrial scale projects, and who can work on diverse teams.
The School of Aeronautics and Astronautics are looking forward to occupying the building in the summer of 2007, with classes starting in the fall. For more information, please visit the web site below.
