Centers and Resources

Overview

Interactive classrooms, labs and workshops simulate real-world environments and obstacles

The career ahead of you is nothing less than building infrastructure that is stronger, products that perform more efficiently, and digital landscapes as real as the ones we wake up to each day. To those ends, you'll master the same industry-leading technology and equipment utilized in the field by veteran engineers of all backgrounds. And you'll do it right here.

Featured Facilities

Dynamic and immersive learning environments

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.

Partnerships

Unique partnerships with manufacturing companies and nonprofit organizations enable students to grow professionally and academically, and make a meaningful impact while doing so.


The work of a Quinnipiac engineer isn’t confined to the lab, and is often focused on making the community a safer, more responsible and sustainable place.

Manufacturing companies and software developers such as Enfield Technologies, North Mill Equipment Finance and Medtronic host engineering students and their faculty mentors as they work on their capstone and independent research projects. These off-campus learning experiences expose students to the kinds of environments they’ll work in as professional engineers.
