UCSD opening huge, cathedral-like engineering center aimed at reshaping the human experience

UC San Diego is about to open a huge, cathedral-like engineering center that will exponentially expand the school’s efforts to do everything from turn plant viruses into human vaccines to program self-driving cars to safely navigate through thick fog.

Franklin Antonio Hall, which cost $180 million to build, will feature 13 “collaboratories,” glassy open spaces meant to maximize the ability of faculty and students from different disciplines to work together, possibly shoulder-to-shoulder with industry engineers.

Prof. Mercier’s Energy Efficient Microsystems Group will be moving into this new building as part of the UCSD Center for Wearable Sensors and Center for Wireless Communications. Read more about this in the San Diego Union Tribune article HERE.
