Labs and Facilities

​The path to empowerment is through education.

Ours is not a traditional classroom setting. Here, students tinker with things, they collaborate and share ideas and they have the freedom to make mistakes, learn from those mistakes and then build, test and create even more innovative products and solutions that make a world of difference.

The state-of-the-art learning environment provides students with the space and tools they need to invent and design discoveries that could transform lives. Our facilities integrate cutting-edge tools, equipment and technology within four distinct spaces that follow the engineering life cycle from concept to finished product.

ASML Ideation Space ASML Ideation Space

We start with the ASML Ideation Space, a reconfigurable idea center that provides study spaces, teleconferencing, conference rooms and a movable panel grid system with writable white boards — all designed to encourage collaboration and exploration.

Donald's Garage Donald's Garage

Next is Donald's Garage, named after the late renowned engineer, Donald P. Shiley, where students can prototype and test their ideas, using everything from 3D printing to circuit board printing, to build and demonstrate an early-generation product.

Fabrication Lab Fabrication Lab

The Fabrication Lab, or "Fab Lab", offers a safe and spacious work space that brings student projects to life using machines to weld, laser-cut and shape metals and plastics. Worktables are situated throughout the space for students to assemble their projects.

The Belanich Engineering Center

A generous gift from Raffaella and John Belanich paved the way for extensive renovations in Loma and Guadalupe Halls in Fall 2018. The remodel added state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories and student innovation spaces, where students can practice being the Changemakers that will change the world. Upon completion of the 74,000 square foot complex, the combined Guadalupe Hall and Loma Hall complex was named the Belanich Engineering Center.
