Purpose: The Hopeman Machine Shop provides professional fabrication, design-for-fabrication advice, and limited student fabrication for ECE and ME student projects and researchers.

Available to: ECE and ME student projects and researchers, as well as non-department and non-curricular fabrication at a lower prioritization than ECE and ME needs.

Access: Speak with Paul Osborne to submit a job and to get access. Obtaining design-for-fabrication advice early in a project is highly recommended.
