students in machining lab

The mission of the MIME Machining and Product Realization Laboratory (MPRL) is to help students develop the practical side of their engineering skill set as they complete their undergraduate or graduate program.

The hands-on knowledge imparted in the MPRL enhances student success with both academic coursework and extracurricular projects. And it gives our graduates a clear advantage in entering the workplace as well-rounded, technically savvy engineers.

In addition, MPRL staff support the work of MIME faculty and others across campus by designing and fabricating parts and components needed for teaching and research.

To ensure physical distancing within the shop workspaces all shop usage requires booking an appointment prior to coming to to work on your project. If you are in a club or organization such as AIAA or SAE, please use the same link below to reserve your workspace.
