Take a Virtual Tour
Sometimes a personal tour of the Swanson School of Engineering and its academic and research facilities isn't possible. These virtual tours will let you take a look inside without stepping foot on campus. (We do however recommend visiting in person!)

Developed by Pittsburgh Gateways Corporation in the former Connelly Trade School, the EIC is designed to engage corporate and community leaders, align workforce development and education, develop and demonstrate technology, and incubate businesses to support emerging clean and sustainable energy markets.
The University's three laboratories and four incubators provide faculty with more flexible, large-scale space for energy research and encourage partnerships with industry. Among these, the Electric Power Technologies Laboratory, focuses on advanced electric power grid and energy generation, transmission, and distribution-system technologies; power electronics and control technologies; renewable energy systems and integration; smart grid technologies and applications; and energy-storage development.
The Medium-Voltage Lab shown below is the only university research facility of its kind in the U.S. and is designed to allow collaborative public-private research on new power technologies.
The Swanson School has several hundred thousand square feet of research laboratories in four university facilities. These are some examples.
