Engineers from the School of Engineering’s Institute for Space and Defense Electronics (ISDE) and the Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS) have just become the newest residents of Nashville’s famed Music Row.
The two institutes relocated their combined 130 personnel to new facilities at 1025 16th Avenue South, expanding to approximately 40,000 square feet of lab, office and conference space. ISIS and ISDE were formerly housed at 2015 Terrace Place and the Centre Building on Broadway, respectively, in facilities that were cramped and no longer met the institutes’ needs.
The new location will not only provide much-needed space but is also expected to assist the School of Engineering in attracting top faculty, researchers and graduate students. Formerly music industry-related offices, the red brick Music Row building was purchased by Vanderbilt for the School of Engineering in 2008.
