Bardeen (Engineering) Quad

This area is the home of the College of Engineering and its related buildings. The college consistently ranks among the top three programs in the country. More than 5,600 undergraduates are enrolled, and the college awards the nation's second largest number of engineering degrees.

This north quadrangle is named for John Bardeen, professor of physics and electrical engineering and the first person to win two Nobel Prizes in the same field. Bardeen was named by Life Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
