The School of Industrial Engineering in housed primarily in Grissom Hall. Grissom Hall contains the School’s administrative and faculty offices, workspaces for most of the graduate and undergraduate students, collaborative classrooms, the undergraduate student center, and many collaboration/student support areas.
Currently, the School of Industrial Engineering is anticipating the opening of the Gateway Complex. A live construction camera of Gateway shows daily progress. Dr. Brunese shares the vision of the Industrial Engineering space within Gateway in this video from spring of 2021.
Currently, industrial engineering manufacturing education and research laboratories can be temporarily found in the A. A. Potter Engineering Center (POTR) and Materials and Electrical Engineering Building (MSEE).
Industrial Engineering's reimagining of the use and work within our on campus spaces did not begin with the Gateway Complex, but several years before.
Grissom Hall was "reinvented" during 2014-2015, as part of Purdue President Mitch Daniels' Purdue Moves effort, which includes expansion of Purdue Engineering as one of its major priorities. (See Grissom Hall "Reinvention" below.
The reinvention was capped with the creation of the deBedout Piazza, featuring gathering space surrounded by beautiful landscaping and a calming water feature.
