What is the Experience Lab?

The experience lab is an area where students, faculty, and staff can find resources, tools, and equipment for prototyping, testing, industry examples, models, teaching aids, and much more.

Why should I use the Experience Lab?

  • Explore an area of hands-on learning. 
  • See examples of equipment from the industry to demonstrate the applications of engineering concepts. 
  • Observe models and teaching aids to demonstrate the engineering concepts taught in the classroom.
  • Utilize resources for rapid prototyping and constructing learning models.
