Computer Engineering Technology Laboratories

Engineering Technology operates and maintains sixteen modern laboratories, all of which contain state-of-the-art, well-maintained equipment for student use.

A customized computer laboratory design allows students to install, test and use both application software and operating systems on an individualized basis. Our laboratories include electric circuits, semiconductor, electronics, digital and microprocessors, control systems and electrical machinery, general purpose computer, telecommunications, networking, operating systems, and new media. A new media technology laboratory provides students with the tools to study the Internet and incorporates a sophisticated video conferencing system. Our electronics and telecommunications laboratories contain professional-level measurement and instrumentation equipment, such as might be used in an industrial laboratory. Each workbench has a desktop computer connected to the department and college network and the Internet.

Electronic Engineering Technology Laboratories

The Engineering Technology Department operates up-to-date laboratories for student use including electrical circuits, semiconductor and electrical machinery, microwave and communications, feedback control systems, digital computers, and CAD laboratories. All student computers are connected to the Department's LAN (Local Area Network). Many laboratory areas also provide up-to-date computer stations using multi-media presentations and data acquisition as part of the laboratory operation. The laboratories contain professional-level measurement and calibration equipment, such as might be used in a well-equipped industrial laboratory. The Department also sponsors an IEEE club and a repair club.

The Advanced Manufacturing Lab combines additive and subtractive manufacturing technologies to provide students and faculty with comprehensive fabrication and training capabilities.

The subtractive capabilities include manual and CNC turning, milling and drilling. The 12 Lathes, 3 Drill Presses 5 Mills and a plethora of manual equipment afford students hands-on exposure to machining best practices. The OMAX Water-jet, Laser Cutter/Engraver, CNC Lathe, CNC Mill and Wire EDM expose students to computer based manufacturing.

The additive capabilities are centered on thermoplastic and photopolymer 3D Printing. Projects range from patient specific anatomical printing to lost-wax investment casting. The Lab is capable of 3D printing across multiple systems in the following materials:

PLA
Nylon
Wax
ABS

ABS
Polycarbonate
All PolyJet Materials except MED610 &SUP707

ASA
ULTEM 9085 & 1010

Other Lab capacities include:

Metrology and 3D-Scanning/Reverse Engineering using the Ziess Contura, FARO Arm & FARO Focus XD.

Laser Materials Processing using the Universal System XLS Fiber/CO2 Laser System

Vacuum Forming using the Formech 508FS Vacuum Former.

Circuit Board Manufacturing using the LPKF ProtoMat S103

Solar Panel

Since March 2010 the Engineering Technology Department has installed and operated a solar panel array located on the roof of the Technology building.

In addition to supporting our alternative energy courses

  • ET 841 - The Science of Energy and Power in the Modern World
  • ET 842 - Energy Production and Conservation for a Sustainable World

The solar panels also allows viewers to

  • View monthly, daily, and hourly energy data.
  • Run daily, monthly, and recent energy reports
