Description

This Project Project Lab is an open lab where all students have ready access to basic electronic test equipment and instrumentation. The primary purpose of the lab is to provide the space and resources needed by students to complete their Senior Design and general student Projects.  The lab is also available for students who need to complete projects and assignments from their other EE courses and laboratories, or for EE graduate students working on projects related to their thesis research. The lab also serves as a meeting location for groups of students working on team projects. Many students also use this lab to work on supplemental learning projects to enhance their understanding of class and lab assignments. 

The Projects Lab is open Monday through Saturday and is monitored by student employees. Presently there are thirteen laboratory benches and one large study desk for student use in this lab.  In addition to the array of test equipment provided at the work benches in the Senior Project Lab, additional instrumentation, cabling, and prototyping materials are also available for student laboratory and project use from a check-out window in this Lab.
