The School of Engineering marries in-depth theory with intensive application. Tator Hall’s Active Classroom for Engineering seamlessly combines dynamic lectures with laboratory-based projects. This classroom offers 12 large two-person tables for group work, two MTS uniaxial load frames for materials testing, and a range of other resources for model design and performing experiments.
Passionate professors teach you to cultivate a vision; cutting-edge classroom resources enable you to independently bring that vision to life. The student fabrication workshop, located in the Center for Communications and Engineering, is a highly creative, reconfigurable work space where students of all engineering disciplines can draft initial mockups of their own designs, as well as prototypes for various courses. In the student design workshop, those designs are realized. This fully equipped and collaborative space supports discussions and brainstorming sessions, as well as testing for processes, models and code.
Where you learn is as important as what you learn, and this is as true for software engineering and computer science students working in our Network Systems and Security Classroom as it is for future mechanical and civil engineers studying hydro-static power and flow measurement in the Hydraulics Workshop. Open, accessible and modern, our facilities foster interdisciplinary exploration and build the broad range expertise necessary for a modern engineer to thrive in fast-paced and rapidly advancing fields.
