Located between Hardaway Hall and the old Bureau of Mines building, the foundry provides space and facilities for teaching, research and service to metal-casting and processing industries for students in the College of Engineering. The foundry is home to the Metal Casting and Solidification Research Facility.

The facility also adjoins a foundry used by the College of Arts and Sciences, and students from both colleges share expanded and renovated collaborative space. Students and faculty in both colleges learn from one another about the different kinds of investment, or mold-making, processes, as well as how to work with additional kinds of metals and alloys for different purposes.
