Rendering of E-Knowledge Commons

A Technology-Rich Student Learning Environment

The E-Knowledge Commons will build a community among mechanical and nuclear engineering students.

The proposed E-Knowledge Commons will be a student-centered space designed for peer-to-peer learning. It will give students a place to work in teams within a variety of study spaces, while having easy access to technology and other resources.

Equipped with individual and group study areas to foster collaboration as well as private meeting rooms outfitted with state-of-the-art computer and video conferencing systems, the E-Knowledge Commons will provide students with the advanced tools they need to learn and succeed in today’s competitive global environment.

Perhaps even more importantly, the E-Knowledge Commons will be a community space in the Reber Building for mechanical and nuclear engineering students.

“The most exciting part about this project is that you are going to have mechanical and nuclear engineering students all in the same area, working on the same projects, and really helping each other succeed. I think at Penn State that’s what we are about—helping each other get through mechanical engineering together.”
