Engineering Building III, opened September 15, 2010, provides a state-of-the-art platform for NC State students and faculty to make the next generation of mechanical, aerospace and biomedical breakthroughs.

The 248,000-square-foot building houses the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Joint NC State-UNC Department of Biomedical Engineering. The new building contains approximately 80 laboratories, two wind tunnels, a flight test cell, anechoic chambers, and classrooms and offices for faculty and graduate students.

The facility also has the first “green” roof on Centennial Campus. The unique feature, which tops the building's high bay annex, features drought-resistant plants and is projected to save an estimated 25-50 percent on heating and cooling costs. The roof is part of a university-wide effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

With the building’s opening, approximately two-thirds of the College of Engineering is now located on Centennial Campus, a 1,334-acre site adjacent to NC State’s main campus that is home to a unique combination of education, research, industry, government and community spaces.

Perkins+Will and Skanska USA Building were the architect and construction manager for the new building, respectively.
