Department of Physics Student Machine Shop Mission Statement:

The mission of the Department of Physics Student Machine Shop is to provide a safe, modern facility where physics students can learn about and explore today’s conventional methods of design, manufacturing, and material properties through structured trainings and hands-on applications.

The Physics Student Machine Shop has been an integral and necessary part of experimental research within the department for more than 100 years – providing hands-on opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students to learn how to safely operate the high-precision machinery and equipment needed to manufacture the complex components of their projects, apparatuses, and instrumentation.
