Point of Interest Details

The Low Center for Industrial Innovation (CII), designed as an industrial-oriented research facility for both Rensselaer and New York state, houses three general computing labs available for student use, a manufacturing center, and clean rooms for designing computer chips.

Former Rensselaer President George M. Low ’48 (director of the Apollo manned spacecraft program in 1967 and eventual deputy administrator of NASA) conceptualized the Center, which now bears his name.

If you visit the CII, the George Low Lounge on the fourth floor contains a permanent exhibit of NASA memorabilia and other materials that honor the life of Rensselaer’s 14th President. You may also view the clean room from windows in rooms 4146 to 4166.
