ISELF - Integrated Science & Engineering Lab Facility



Think do make a diference
The Integrated Science and Engineering Laboratory Facility (ISELF) opened in 2013 as  a unique, student-centered, experiential learning facility.  ISELF, a critical and complementary component within all College of Science & Engineering (COSE) facilities, is designed to expand the active, hands-on learning opportunities available to students, as COSE recognizes students become highly marketable when they are given opportunities to be engaged in experiential learning and to practically apply knowledge faculty has provided in the classroom.
A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY FACILITY

ISELF is designed to place faculty and students from different subject areas side-by-side in common work spaces, interdisciplinary collaboration is encouraged, broadening students’ learning and education experiences.  None of the space within ISELF is assigned to a specific department or program and the work taking place within each space is continuously evolving due to design flexibility allowing the facility to easily adapt to new projects and shifting priorities.
SCALE & DESIGN UNIQUE FOR THIS REGION

ISELF is a 100,000 square-foot teaching and research facility with state-of-the-art laboratory suites, exposing students to a wide range of equipment and experiences unlike anything offered at similar educational institutions, equipping SCSU students with the scientific, quantitative and technological knowledge and experience necessary for work and life in a dynamic world.

ISELF LABORATORIES & SPACES
IMAGING CENTER
Imaging is an integral part of the materials science and nanotechnology areas, and COSE’s Imaging Center is a collaborative space designed for efficient workspace flow and equipment sharing, focused on materials characterization.  The Imaging Center is utilized by multiple departments, including: Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Atmospheric & Hydrological Science.  Each instrument looks at materials or surfaces at a microscopic level. Images produced in the center can be projected onto screens throughout ISELF.
INTEGRATED RESEARCH LABORATORY
The IRL is used by all COSE programs, leveraging collaborative space focused on interdisciplinary faculty research projects and research conducted on behalf of external partners.  Laboaratory space is divided into areas dedicated to teaching students how to perform research, allow for shared equipment to increase efficiency and collaboration and for interdisciplinary faculty research projects. The IRL boasts a highly-flexible workspace that is easily reconfigured based on the research activity, due to mobile cabinetry with multi-functional capabilities, movable lab tables and other elements of flexible design.
MATH TUTORING CENTER
ISELF is home to a math tutoring center that features a unique multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary tutoring space for all COSE departments.  The Center is acoustically designed to facilitate multiple, simultaneous, energetic conversations amidst specially constructed room angles, ceiling tiles and sound-absorbent furniture so students are able to leverage “super tutors” who provide support in multiple subject areas
SENIOR DESIGN LABORATORY
The Senior Design Laboratory is a flexible and dynamic space that will change from year-to-year, depending on the projects each COSE senior engineering student selects. Students from different academic programs work side-by-side, allowing students from different majors to collaborate and learn from one another.  This project required of all senior engineering students  is intended as a learning experience to set SCSU’s COSE graduates apart from students who attend other academic institutions.
