Engineering & Aviation Science Complex

University of Maryland Eastern Shore • Princess Anne, Maryland

An interdisciplinary educational building with training labs and simulators

An iconic new building on the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s historic, rural campus, the Engineering & Aviation Science Complex houses cutting-edge programs in engineering, aviation science, computer science, mathematics, and telecommunications. The 166,000-square-foot building has a nano-technology lab with a clean room, four aviation simulators, a television broadcast studio, a student radio station, office suites, and a student commons and dining area.

Innovative mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering was critical to the building’s LEED®-Gold status. Highlights include:

  • 220 geothermal wells to provide heating and cooling
  • Lighting control system to monitor occupancy and natural lighting
  • HVAC system economizer controls to increase outside air and reduce pump and fan requirements
  • Skylights with automatic electronic shading
  • Elevators that produce regenerative energy when braking
  • Water-efficient plumbing fixtures
  • Low-mercury lamps
