McMahon Building
Main Campus
Constructed: 1952
In Honor of: John McMahon
In this building: School of Engineering

The McMahon Engineering Building, the primary classroom building for ceramic engineering programs, contains some of the most advanced technology on campus, from an atomic force microscope and electron microscopes to highly specialized equipment for measuring thermal and mechanical properties of materials and a class 10,000 clean room for making electronic ceramics.

In the "Mud Lab," freshmen ceramic engineers learn the principles of ceramic engineering, from mixing clay bodies and glazes to firing finished products. In other words, they get their hands (and their clothes) dirty!
