prototyping lab2021The Engineering Design and Prototyping Lab is an open-access workspace where approved engineering students can work independently or in teams on class projects or related extracurricular activities. The lab includes ample workspace, as well as commonly used tools and storage space for unfinished or ongoing projects.

Potential uses of the space include collaborative brainstorming, rapid prototyping, electronics work and basic fabrication/prototyping that students can use without direct supervision. The use of power tools, advanced 3D printers and machining equipment will require supervision by the lab director, course instructor, or other approved faculty members.

Hours and Location
