The Engineering Student Shops are an open environment where users can work on course-related projects, student team projects and projects related to start-up companies.  Multiple shop locations in Engineering 5 and Engineering 7 provide application specific tools and equipment for a variety of manufacturing tasks.  All shops are supervised by qualified machinist instructors, and training is provided to ensure safety and to provide knowledge and enhanced skills for machining and fabrication.

Specialty services include laser cutting, 3D printing, and electronics fabrication. 

A fully staffed machine shop with CNC capabilities is available in Engineering 3 for more complex projects where users are unable to complete the manufacturing themselves.Student operating machinery
