Facilities and Technology

Technology education and research cannot happen without state-of-the-art facilities. Indiana University Bloomington and the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering have made a substantial investment to provide students and faculty with the infrastructure, computing resources, and collaborative space to facilitate learning and inspire discovery. 

A Transformative New Building

The explosive growth of the School over the past five years has put extreme pressure on the School's facilities. We combined several of our units under one roof to provide a cohesive culture that enables the full integration of its curricular and research program across computer science, informatics and information and library science, and intelligent systems engineering, and emphasizes a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. This cohesion was made possible with a new building. Learn more about Luddy Hall.


In addition to the seven classrooms and eight labs in Luddy Hall, the recently renovated Informatics East and Informatics West buildings form a 60,000-square foot complex of informatics classrooms, labs, and offices, including the Informatics Learn Lab, a space filled with the latest in modern classroom technology to facilitate interactive and collaborative learning.

In fall 2010, a new 12,000-square foot building connected the two spaces. The new building features a three-story open-plan design and some of the most cutting-edge classroom and office space on campus. It also includes a fully wired courtyard, where students can plug in and power up between classes.

Labs at SICE support a diverse array of research and teaching, from a music lab to an HCI studio; a robotics lab to a high-bay tower for nano engineering; a digital heritage lab to one that specializes in research on aging in place, and many more.With the completion of Luddy Hall, SICE now has have five fabrication and prototype labs, 25 research labs, and 12 instructional labs.
