RFAF Campus Host Program
At NCSU on Centennial Campus
Engineering Building III, opened in 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 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 saves on heating and cooling costs. The roof is part of a university-wide effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and boost sustainability.
