New Location of Engineering Communication Studio
April 20, 2015
To assist all LSU students in improving their communication skills, CxC has staff and communication studios across campus equipped with state-of-the-art technology and highly skilled communication advisors. The Engineering Communication Studio, housed within the Chevron Center for Engineering Education, has always been a hub for engineering students on the second floor of Patrick F. Taylor Hall.
“This studio was always filled with people,” stated Boz Bowles, CxC’s College of Engineering Coordinator. “It was so convenient – right in the middle of PFT.” The attendance numbers show that it is a popular space, and with so many resources like space for individual or group activities, smart boards, computers, and presentation rooms, there is no doubt why students utilized the space so regularly.
Patrick F. Taylor Hall is currently undergoing a $110 million renovation and expansion project. Since construction on Patrick F. Taylor began, the Chevron Center for Engineering Education and the Engineering Communication Studio spaces have moved to room 1501, a studio located in the southeast corner of the building, facing Nicholson Extension.
In the temporary space, the studio has two rooms for use, a computer lab and a printing room; a larger, third room may be used for presentation purposes along with the Smart Board, camera recording system used for teleconferencing, Skype, and AdobeConnect. In the computer lab space, there are multiple computers with programs including MyMathlab and Photoshop, a Maker Bot 3-D printer, and a poster printer.
Once construction is finished, a beautiful new facility will be available for use by all LSU students, until then, stop by the temporary space in 1501 PFT for all your engineering communication needs.
