The department has several specialized labs to aid students in their understanding of the fundamentals covered in lecture. These labs are made available to students in a variety of ways. First, during scheduled labs, the student has access to the lab and equipment with a faculty member present to answer any questions as well as observe demonstrations of assigned lab work. In addition, students have card-swipe access to the laboratories at posted times. The final form of lab access is for students in their final year working on their capstone design project, who have unlimited access to the real-time lab.
