Design Lab: Fabrication and Prototyping Area (including the Haas Technical Center)

The O.T. Swanson Multidisciplinary Design Laboratory (The Design Lab) at Rensselaer is well known for its real world student-led projects. Beneath the design studio sprawls the cutting edge fabrication and prototyping shop that is supported in part by the generosity of Haas Corporation, the largest machine tool builder in the United States.

Fabrication and Prototyping Area (including the Haas Technical Center) boosts an array of the latest equipment. For a complete list, see the equipment section.
