Mechanical Engineering Laboratories and Facilities

Administrative and Faculty Space

The faculty and support staff for the Department of Mechanical Engineering are housed on the first floor of the Lehman Engineering and Technology Center. This office suite opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m.

Educational and Research Laboratories

Specialized laboratories for each of the three undergraduate tracks (Clean Energy, High Performance Vehicles, and Robotics), in addition to a welding facility and design studio, are located in the M building, just to the south of the primary Engineering building, where the majority of the labs are located.
