Our state-of-the-art laboratories provide limitless hands-on learning opportunities, both within your own particular field of study and with multi-disciplinary teammates.

Find or fuel your passion in one or more of our interdisciplinary labs. Tackle problems at the nanoscale in our Center for Nanostructures. Work on humanitarian projects in the Frugal Innovation Hub. Work independently or with peers to find solutions to the world's energy challenges in the Latimer Energy Lab. Have fun working on your own 3D printing project or an assignment for class in the Maker Lab. Advance drone technology, monitor satellites for NASA, or design autonomous vehicles for use in Monterey Bay or Lake Tahoe in the Robotics Systems Laboratory. Partner with Silicon Valley medical device and biotechnology companies to solve real-world challenges that transform global health in the Healthcare Innovation and Design Program.

Our departments also have their own discipline-specific labs for bioengineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering, and our Engineering Computing Center provides ten computer labs for student use.
