We have precision lathes, programmable indexing head and rotary table, sheet metal and wood-working shops, ironworker and welders.
These facilities at the McKelvey School of Engineering provide students the training and opportunity to learn and practice hands-on manufacturing techniques in a safe and supervised environment. We also offer instructional support to students, faculty and staff from the School of Engineering, as they work on class projects, research, and student club team design competitions.
The Neurotech Hub within the Department of Neuroscience engages with the community and provides scientific, technological, or professional resources. Our shop contains tooling from precision laser cutters to high-resolution 3D printers that will accelerate in-house ideation, prototyping, and one-of-a-kind applications. Membership is offered to departments, research labs, and individual WashU users.
