Northeastern University Opens $225 Million Science and Engineering Complex

NEC member Northeastern University recently held a grand opening ceremony for its new $225 million Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC).

The ceremony took place in the atrium of the 234,000 square foot ISEC building with demonstrations of Northeastern research projects, including NASA’s Valkyrie robotic prototype that the university helped develop. Attendees of the opening ceremony included U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, U.S. Representative Joseph Kennedy III, Mayor Martin Walsh, and Director of the National Science Foundation France A. Córdova. The new complex has space dedicated to research on security, robotics, and drug discovery.

“This complex is a statement that this city, this state, thrive because of discovery, because of research, because of learning,” said Northeastern President Joseph Aoun.

The New England Council congratulates Northeastern University on the completion and opening of the new ISEC complex that will allow Northeastern to expand further the university’s research capabilities. Read more in The Boston Globe and Boston Business Journal.
