Shop

To use the workshop facilities, graduate students must obtain the permission of the shop supervisor. Each student must demonstrate to the shop supervisor the ability to proficiently and safely operate a particular machine before permission for use will be granted, however only shop personnel may operate certain machines.

Shop personnel are available to assist with construction of research apparatus. For a large project, plans (including detailed drawings) and a work request must be prepared and submitted to and approved by the major professor prior to submitting it to the shop supervisor. For small projects, or short-term assistance, requests are to be made directly to the shop supervisor.
