The great ideas of the future—the ones that might cure devastating diseases or address our world's looming climate woes—won't be devised by brilliant, solitary thinkers. Instead, they will emerge from the intellectual collisions of research teams, from alliances between engineers and biologists or mathematicians and climate scientists.
Interdisciplinary research is the future, and SDSU is ready to go there.
The EIS Complex is a key piece in SDSU's drive to become a top-50 public research university. Not only will it enhance the university's current teaching and research capacities, it will also boost SDSU's ability to attract the best and brightest researchers and graduate students. To help bring products to market, the EIS Complex will house the William E. Leonhard Entrepreneurship Center, creating a crossroads for the STEM disciplines and a focal point for SDSU's entrepreneurship efforts.
