Engineering Innovation Studio

Our Engineering Innovations Studio is filled with state-of-the-art equipment to allow students to develop machining skills. Our new HAAS TL1 lathe is just one of the tools students can use for projects.

Use the Engineering Innovation Studio

As our technical society becomes more digital, modern engineering students must balance complex theory in lecture courses with an opportunity to realize creativity in a real-world fabrication space. Our students now have over 1,000 hours of access to equipment, software, and trained personnel to help them master their skills.

Hours:  Monday thru Friday, 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM

Student preparation

Our student shop facilities are located in the Harry Morrison Civil Engineering Building. The shop is open to students, faculty and staff to work on school-related projects. However, users must complete training associated with the various shop tools before they will be allowed to use them. Students working on academic projects will be given a priority over others.
