Work of art or engineering history lesson? The new
Computational Science and Engineering
building's first-floor exhibit is a little bit of both. The
60-foot exhibit, created by the university's
Office of Design and Publications, seeks to illustrate what
engineers do and show off the Whiting
School's cutting-edge research and accomplishments.
The exhibit is divided into four themes: extending the human
reach, making the world a safer
place, improving health and integrating research and
It features stunning images, showcased artifacts, milestone
facts etched on aluminum discs and
four plasma screens that each tell a story related to a theme. A
ribbon of bubinga, an exotic African
wood, ties the four areas together.
