Engineering and Physics Laboratories

The Engineering and Physics Laboratories at Bennett Gymnasium were dedicated in August 2015, providing innovative, modern facilities for an academic department that has long been a national leader in providing research opportunities for its undergraduate students.

Historic Bennett Gymnasium – one of the original buildings constructed in 1929-30 when ACU moved to its present campus – has been converted into a 24,000-square-foot laboratory, workshop and teaching space.

ACU engineering students have the opportunity not only to partner with physics majors on research at national laboratories such as FermiLab and Brookhaven, but they now have dedicated space for their own unique projects.

Along with improving the academic quality for ACU’s engineering program, a new facility dedicated to the needs of engineering and physics students, adjacent to the Halbert-Walling Research Center, enhances the spirit of Christ-centered community the university works hard to cultivate on campus.
