Goodwin Engineering Building

Goodwin, the newest building at Virginia Tech, is the new home of several engineering departments.  The top photo is a jet engine hanging from the ceiling near the entrance.  Hope the doors several floors below provide some scale to its size.  A robotics lab seems cluttered with robots and a three-D printer is available in the hallway for any students to use.
