The University of Florida’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering celebrated the opening of its Laboratory for Engineering Excellence on Thursday, October 7, 2021. The new steel and glass building is meant to provide educational enrichment for engineering students, employing a nontraditional classroom style where lectures are watched online and classroom time is dedicated to hands-on work. Classes in this building are for all types of engineering students, and it especially focuses on leadership and innovation.
