Welcome

The FabLab is a Class 1000 research cleanroom located in the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building. The lab supports research and development programs in nano science and technology, micro-electromechanical systems, semiconductors, materials and devices for electronics, bioscience and bioengineering, and sensor/actuator systems. FabLab is open to users from across the university community as well as government and industry.

Classes in FabLab

The FabLab is not only used for work and research. We have a growing number of classes utilizing this state of the art facility giving students hands on experience learning the processes and techniques used to make our electronics and devices.
