Oklahoma State University celebrated the opening of the Devon Energy Material Science Laboratory in a new state-of-the-art building. The Devon laboratory is part of ENDEAVOR, a 72,000-square-foot building with 15 labs, collaborative work spaces and five industry-aligned labs for student projects.
Devon donated $600,000 for the innovative space, which houses a microscopy suite for metallurgy, corrosion and material science courses. The gift also creates the Devon Ingenuity Leadership Scholars Program.
University and company officials attended a Nov. 13 ribbon cutting at the lab.
“Contributions from industry partners like Devon brought this facility to reality,” said Paul J. Tikalsky, dean of the OSU College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology. “Their understanding of the need for industry and higher education to come together is the key to our combined efforts.”
