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.
