Materials Lab

Our students build their designs in our 3,000-square-foot Materials Lab featuring state-of-the art equipment for woodworking, metalworking, C.N.C routing as well as 3-D printing. The Materials Lab offers students a unique opportunity to learn how to fabricate their designs and experience the production process with the help of our trained Materials Lab staff. The Materials Lab is not just a model shop – it is a place to research the feasibility of designs and develop problem solving skills while exploring new materials. 
Every Architecture student is given their own studio space. Students have weekly studio hours with faculty where they can receive one-on-one feedback on their work. It’s a place where students can work on their designs, hear feedback from their professors, and get inspired by their classmates. Whether they are night owls or early risers, students have 24/7 access to their studio space so they can work on their design whenever inspiration strikes.
