Business and Engineering Center
Home to the Romain College of Business and the Department of Engineering, the Business and Engineering Center is a recent addition to the USI campus. Opened in 2010, the building's 122,210 square feet include 11,470 square feet of common space intended to encourage collaboration by allowing students to continue conversations begun in class or fraternize with students from other disciplines. Student spaces include the O'Daniel Atrium, the Vectren Lakeside Study Lounge and Balcony, and smaller lounges on each floor.
Additional building features include:
- The Old National Bank Sales Suite and Joseph P. Coslett Sales Management Development Laboratory, which utilize one-way glass and video recording capability to provide students with a heightened awareness of their sales strengths and weaknesses and allow for instant feedback, focus group research, product comparisons, and more.
- The Lloyd C. Hahn Engineering Design Center, providing students with dedicated lab space to conceptualize and prototype engineering designs.
- The Ron and Connie Romain Board Room, modeled after a corporate board room to give students a simulated professional environment for presentations and provide meeting space for advisory boards to the College of Business, the Department of Engineering, and community groups.
- The Kahn Dees Donovan & Kahn Decision Support and Negotiations Lab utilizes an equalizing decision-making process that neutralizes the impact of personalities and authority figures in a group situation.
