Laboratories & Facilities

At the College of Engineering and Computer Science, students use different computer and engineering laboratories and equipment as part of their program courses to test, apply, and practice what they are learning.

Students have the opportunity to gain hands-on learning experience in the classroom and by partnering with faculty as research assistants.

CECS looks forward to remaining one of the state’s best engineering colleges, continuing to attract the best faculty to teach and do research in high-demand and emerging fields and draw the best students in the region to provide the many hands-on, experiential learning opportunities that critical to fill high-demand engineering jobs. This vision will be realized with the new state-of-the-art Engineering Lab Building (ELB). 

Key Requests and Building Access

The safety and security of every department in CECS is our highest priority. 

  • Only staff and faculty members should submit key requests. 
  • If a student needs a key or access to your office/lab, a faculty or staff member must submit the request on their behalf.
  • Students must first complete Comprehensive Lab Safety Training before being granted access to labs. This training must be taken every year. Contact one of the DACs below to confirm whether a student's training is current.
  • Students will not receive key access to teaching labs. Instead, please submit building access or short term access forms when necessary.
