The College of Science and Engineering has identified a pressing need for a world-class physics and nanotechnology research facility. This facility will benefit both the University and industry. The state of Minnesota has provided planning funds, and we are hopeful the legislature will provide bonding money to fund two-thirds of the facility construction costs within the next two years. With help from the University to cover the remaining one-third of the construction costs, the college’s share of this $80 million project will equal about $10 million.
Top research and teaching facilities help attract top faculty and the most promising students. They also help industry by providing equipment and expertise. The University of Minnesota's work in nanotechnology is advancing life-changing research.
