Ana Chew ’20 spent her summer in Hawaii studying the effect of microplastics in the ocean with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Kinsley School of Engineering, Sciences and Technology
Hands-on learning isn’t just a goal in the Kinsley School of Engineering, Sciences and Technology – it’s at the core of everything we do.
Get familiar with our state-of-the-art lab as we prepare you for your post-graduate work or a career using equipment you'll already know how to use before your first day on the job.
Civil Engineering Center
The Civil Engineering Center opened in 2018. The Center provides engineering students with state-of-the-art classroom and lab spaces to gain hands-on, practical experience.
Our students report back that what they use in our labs is as good or better than what they see outside of the classroom, with more than $1 million invested in equipment. That’s the kind of preparation that will make you an ideal job candidate from day one.
Computer Science Labs
Use our visualization lab and the 3-D projection system for your senior design projects. Take advantage of the high-performance Linux cluster in the Software Engineering Lab and its 24 PCs.
We offer seven specialized lab settings: Automation and Robotics; Electronic Instrumentation; Embedded Systems; Signal Processing and Communication; Power Systems and Energy Conversion; Thermodynamics, Fluids and Heat Transfer; and Materials Science and Engineering.
Harry E. Zumbrun Machining Technology Lab
We’ve dedicated 5,500-square feet for industry-standard machines and power tools of all sizes. You’ll get to start using them freshman year, learning shop safety and basic operation. You’ll have access to our weld shop and wood shop, too.
Naylor Ecological Building
Provides teaching and research labs for biology students, a large aquaria space including an aquaponics system and a controlled growth chamber.
After graduation, Andrew Gotliffe ’11 says he felt like he was “one year above every other graduate, not just fresh out of the classroom.”
For Cara Sperbeck ’18, the project isn’t just another design assignment – it’s about giving back.
Computer Science majors Logan Harris and Alex Brown are two of four students helping gardeners and researchers collect pollination data.
