Leading Labs and Research
The Applied Technology CenterTM (ATC) includes several centers of excellence and undertakes more than 250 company-sponsored research projects every year.
The Fluid Power InstituteTM, part of the ATC, operates a wide variety of hydraulic components under high pressure and flow conditions, allowing for custom, in-depth testing and analysis solutions.
The Rapid Prototyping Center, part of the ATC, offers additive manufacturing with more than 15 material choices. It’s the only university lab devoted to all five commercially available rapid prototyping systems.
The Center for BioMolecular Engineering creates unique physical models of molecular structures using rapid prototyping technologies.
Through the Research Experience for Undergraduates program, students develop their skills by researching projects that advance state-of-the-art applications in various fields. The Academic Undergraduate Research program allows students to work alongside faculty members in meaningful research while earning credit towards their degree.
Undergraduate students spend hundreds of hours in industry-standard labs such as the BioMolecular Engineering Laboratory Suite, the Construction Science and Engineering Center, the Gene Carter Apple Technologies Learning Suite, the Johnson Controls Environmental Systems and Software Development Laboratories, and the Ruehlow Nursing Complex—to name a few.
