Learn more about the Center’s new facilities and how this new purpose-built center will fuel collaboration, innovation, hands-on learning and research opportunities.
Modern lecture-style classrooms designed to provide space for students to problem solve on multiple whiteboards, display projections in more than one direction and take part in collaborative group work.
Structures & Materials Lab
In this dual lecture/laboratory space — equipped with torsion, compression and beam testing machines — students study the behavior of simple structures and materials.
Designed for lectures and laboratory work, this space allows civil engineering students to scrutinize building sites by analyzing soils and fluids using a pipe rack, digital load frames, direct shear/consolidation testing devices, sieve shakers and a drying oven.
Environmental Testing Lab
Using glassware and drying ovens, aspiring environmental engineers can measure oxygen demand, pH, turbidity, temperature and more.
Simulation & Modeling Lab
In these workstations, students work with faculty to develop simulation and modeling skills using design, visualization, and mapping tools such as Autodesk, MATLAB, SAP2000, Abaqus, and ArcGIS.
Makerspace Student Sandbox
Innovative ideas come to life in this multipurpose workspace where students have access to tools, our parts library and raw materials for exploring robotics, machine design and product development.
Complex 3D computer drawings become novel parts through the magic of 3D printers, a laser cutter and a WAZER metal-cutting waterjet.
Students explore the future of robotics with our Boston Dynamics Spot robot, a Pepper humanoid robotic system, VEX Robotics systems, a Teradyne testing system, and other advanced fabrication and testing equipment.
Concepts become tangible as students fabricate physical prototypes using lathes, mills, tabletop CNC machines, bandsaws, grinders and other state-of-the-art metal and woodworking equipment.
A space for faculty and students to test research ideas and potential products.
Electrical Engineering Lab/Classroom
This hub for hands-on practice and learning offers spaces for lectures in electrical engineering, as well as electronics and circuit design labs.
Electrical Engineering Workshop
Students, especially seniors, perform project work in this dedicated space.
