Science & Engineering Facilities

Anderson University boasts small classroom sizes with one-on-one time with faculty, facilities, and equipment while integrating faith & learning. Discover more about the opportunities waiting for you to start your story!

Students have accesses to resources in three computer labs containing over 65 computers (including both Windows and Macintosh), which are connected through the internal departmental network. The Cybersecurity Engineering Laboratory, which opened in October 2017, provides significant additional computing and networking resources. The department runs two primary production servers and a number of other servers used for academic purposes, including several Linux-based servers.

The Anderson University Computer Science and Mathematics Departments are located on the third floor of Decker Hall. Study space available within the offices allows students to work in groups on programming projects, and to study closely with faculty.

Computer Science Facilities

The Anderson University Computer Science Department is located on the third floor of Decker Hall. Study space available within the Computer Science offices allows students to work in groups on programming projects, and to study closely with faculty.

Students have accesses to resources in three computer labs containing over 65 computers (including both Windows and Macintosh), which are connected through the internal departmental network.

Hartung Hall

Hartung Hall, a state-of-the-art science building, was part of a $5.5 million, 30,000-square-foot expansion and renovation project. New classrooms and quality instrumentation make AU one of the best study opportunities available. Laboratories are equipped with such instruments as physiographs, binocular oil scopes, tissue culture equipment, various centrifuges, and other state-of-the-art equipment.

Mathematics Facilities

Located on the third floor of Decker Hall, the AU Department of Mathematics is an open and inviting space.  Four faculty offices open into a common area with whiteboard walls. All who pass through can see mathematics being done.

Decker 338 is a classroom that has been specially designed for mathematics mathematics courses. Distinctive features include floor to ceiling whiteboard walls and easily movable furniture. Tables in the room provide ample space for notebooks, textbooks, and a laptop. The versatile nature of the furniture allows the room to be transformed to accommodate lectures with 35 students, students working in groups, and smaller seminar based courses.

Decker 330 serves as the department's mathematics lab. This room is used for tutoring, seminar space, and a place where students can work on projects together.

Rozelle Observatory
Dedicated in June 1977, the 14-foot motorized dome facility was originally one of Indiana’s largest. AU astronomers now use a 16” diameter reflecting telescope. The new telescope offers detailed planetary and binary star viewing.
