Student Fabrication Center Equipment & Tools

The College of Engineering offers the following tools and equipment for student use in rooms 225 and 230 Driftmier, the Digital Fabrication Shop and the Design Workspace, respectively. All Fabrication Center users must first undertake a training session to receive keycard access to the spaces.

A number of items are available for checkout on a limited basis (2-week intervals) as part of the College’s Technology Lending Program (link to Tech Lending page). Additionally, the College’s Machine Shop offers a wide variety of tools.

All requests for training and lab usage should come from students’ faculty mentor, which can be an instructor, Capstone mentor, or research lab coordinator. Submit requests for access/training or any other questions to labsupport@engr.uga.edu.
