Abstract
Description
The $32 million, 143,000 sq. ft. John Bardo Center opened in January 2017 as the first phase in the development of WSU's Innovation Campus. Each College of Engineering department and program has contributed to the design through a task-force of faculty members and department chairs. The result is a project-based experiential learning environment for bringing engineering fundamentals to life. Students benefit from ideas inspired by multi-disciplinary collaboration with faculty, students from across campus, industry, and the Wichita community. The building houses all the tools necessary for innovators to develop ideas into new products and bring them to market, including a 3D print center, business incubator and accelerator spaces, and a technology transfer office to offer advice on patents and marketing. (The building was originally called the Experiential Engineering Building, but renamed for the former university president John Bardo, following his death in 2019.)
