The School of Engineering boasts a plethora of state-of-the-art facilities to ensure students are well prepared for professional success after graduation.
Our departments are housed in the Leo Engineering Building (Leo Hall) and the Research and Learning Center on Corlear Avenue (the south campus). These buildings are conveniently adjacent to the 238 Street and Broadway 1 train MTA subway stop. The buildings house programs from other schools of the College — biology, communication, mathematics, computer science, and continuing and professional studies — as well as the U.S. Air Force ROTC program, the campus bookstore and a college dining facility, the Leo Cafe.
Most classrooms hold less than 40 students to ensure valuable, one-on-one teaching. Each engineering program has modern laboratories associated with its undergraduate, graduate and research activities, and the Environmental Engineering graduate program has a comprehensive laboratory located on the third floor of Leo Hall.
The Fischbach Room is a large space for student group collaboration, formal school events and general study. The room also houses an extensive collection of electrical vacuum tubes donated by Brother Patrick Dowd, F.S.C., Ph.D.
The William J. Scala Academy Room is a a 132-seat auditorium with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment, wired for presentations and internet access. Donated by Helen and Anthony J. Scala ’43, the Academy Room is named to honor the memory of their son, William J. Scala (1959–1979), a former Manhattan College student. The Scala Academy Room pays tribute to each of the sixteen college alumni who have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering — the highest professional honor an engineer can receive.
