Where Innovation Materializes

Imagine the possibilities when our immensely talented faculty and students have access to a world-class facility—the discoveries they will make, the problems they will solve. 


The Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex will inspire innovations in research that translate to advances in medicine, education and commercialization of technologies that will impact generations to come. Only at Ohio State will two accomplished departments—Biomedical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering—be housed together in one facility offering unlimited opportunity for discovery. With a mandate for collaboration embedded in its design, this new state-of-the-art complex will unite students, faculty and industry partners to solve problems across disciplines.


Before the first architectural plans were drawn, before dignitaries gathered to break ground, the Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex was conceived with its users in mind. Undergraduate and graduate students, faculty members and support staff were consulted for their feedback. How can modern classrooms empower students through experiential learning? How can building design lead to desired research outcomes? How can we support intellectual property and clinical applications at every turn? 


The result is paradigm-shifting facility that promotes 21st century teaching and learning, unmatched in its capacity for innovation and collaboration.


With your support, we will create a complex that builds on the enduring traditions of excellence of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Biomedical Engineering—setting both departments on a course for continued eminence in their fields, while igniting new discoveries that will improve and even save lives.


The College of Engineering seeks philanthropic support from our loyal network of alumni, corporate and industry partners, and other friends of the college and Buckeye nation. Together, we will create a world-class facility that will make the college the envy of its peers across the nation and around the globe. This level of innovation is possible only because of the resources available at one of the nation’s most comprehensive universities, the intensely loyal partnerships the college enjoys, and your belief that Ohio State can make a difference.
