BU FACILITIES

Program Title:
The Innovative Technologies Complex

Description:

A 21-acre parcel that extends the eastern boundary of the campus and affords prime space for research facilities. It is home to two buildings, with a third under construction:

The Biotechnology Building, which opened in 2006, was the first building at Binghamton University's Innovative Technologies Complex, or ITC. The facility has helped the University in its efforts to facilitate cutting-edge research in the biotechnology and biomedical fields and help move innovation from the laboratory to the marketplace. The 92,000-square-foot facility, renovated with a $15 million Gen*NY*sis - Generating Employment Through New York Science - grant, was intended as the anchor for a larger effort to spur new research and create jobs in Greater Binghamton. It features flexible laboratory space, a clinic for clinical trials and a Start-up Suite for new businesses and houses the Division of Research administrative offices as well as the Analytical and Diagnostics Laboratory.

The $66 million Engineering and Science Building, which opened in 2011, expanded facilities for the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science. The building provides administrative, academic and research space, housing the dean's office, the departments of electrical and computer engineering and mechanical engineering and the Integrated Electronics Engineering Center (IEEC). Space has been set aside for new business start-ups. The facility will meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards, with a number of "green" features, including geothermal heating and cooling, a passive solar wall and special cooling system for computing heat load.

The $30 million, 114,000-square-foot Center of Excellence building now under construction will provide space for expansion and consolidation of the Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center (S3IP) and its interdisciplinary teams of scientists and engineers. The two-story glass, metal and stone building will feature versatile laboratory space, a symposium hall and offices that support Binghamton University's expanding partnerships. Featuring in-house design, planning and construction management, this building will meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards, incorporating energy-efficient windows and skylights for maximum use of daylight, green roof applications and the latest technology for heat recovery and humidity control.

Binghamton Research: On the move

  • Awards for sponsored research in 2009-10 topped $44 million for the first time. That's an increase of 76 percent over five years.

  • New technology disclosures and patents granted to Binghamton faculty, staff and students continue to rise, and the new Entrepreneurship Across the Curriculum initiative is bring discussions about entrepreneurialism to more Binghamton undergraduate and graduate students than ever before.

  • Plans are in the works for a new Organized Research Center focused on healthcare-related research. Visit http://go.binghamton.edu/health for more details.
