Our Facilities

The Durning Laboratory

The Durning Laboratory is the dedicated design space for undergraduate mechanical engineering students. With more than 6,000 sq ft, the laboratory is home to student project work areas, material testing instrumentation, composites fabrication space, the ME student machine shop, and an ME student computer lab. It is at the heart of the undergraduate design program, providing support to all undergraduate design classes, from the freshman CAD class all the way up to Senior Design. Durning Laboratory also provides essential tools for checkout to ME students, including: hand tools, measurement devices, fasteners, adhesives, reference materials, electronic components, and a high-speed camera.    ​

The ITL Laboratory
​​The Integrated Teaching and Learning (ITL) Program is supported by the unique ITL Laboratory--a 34,000-sq. ft learning facility that provides students and educators with a flexible, visible learning environment. Its curriculum-driven design supports a variety of learning styles and features first-year design studios, an active learning center, a computer network integrating all experimental equipment throughout two large, open laboratory plazas, fabrication “shacks,” group work areas, and student-centered, highly accessible technology-rich electronics and manufacturing centers.

The ITL Program and Laboratory has received numerous awards, including the prestigious 2008 Bernard M. Gordon Prize Award from the National Academy of Engineering.

The FALL Laboratory

​The Fleming Active Learning Laboratory (FALL) is dedicated Graduate Design Program space in the Fleming Law building. These facilities are used exclusively by the students in the Graduate Design Program, and students enrolled in APD and Grad Design. This space includes a dedicated computer laboratory, conference room, active learning classroom, mechanical fabrication room, electrical fabrication room, multi-use lounge area, and individual team studios for Grad Design.
