SimCenter Research and Education Facilities
A 31,000 sq. ft. SimCenter research and education facility was officially opened in November 2003. It is located at 701 East M.L. King Boulevard, adjacent to the UTC campus.
The UC Foundation renovated this formerly unoccupied building, which had been donated by the City of Chattanooga.
The SimCenter facility includes faculty offices, student cubicles, a 1,500 sq. ft. computer room, a conference/meeting room accommodating 25 people, an 80-seat auditorium, two secure expandable suites of rooms dedicated to proprietary and/or classified research, a research library, and other work space.
The interior layout is designed to facilitate extensive cross-disciplinary interactions among faculty and students, with student cubicles in large open spaces adjacent to faculty offices.
