The College of Engineering Technology Center provides engineering services for College and University students, faculty, staff, researchers, and more. We house two shops that double as maker spaces - an Electronics shop and a Machine shop - that complete electronic and mechanical services.

  • The Electronics Shop tackles electronic repair, calibration, and design services throughout the college. They also maintain a sales desk in 2018 SC that sell lab parts and kits for engineering lab classes and other educational items.  Check their interactive EES parts catalog listing or the complete on-line inventory to see all products available in the shop. Safety data sheets can be found at https://etc.engineering.uiowa.edu/safety-data-sheets .
  • The Machine Shop is a modern version of the classic machine shop that includes compute-literate staff, machines, and methods alongside traditional manufacturing equipment and procedures.

While the services we provide are individualized for each person or problem, the general services we provide are under the following categories:

  • Basic 3D Printing - Consumer grade 3D printing services
  • Consultation - Consultation with students, staff and faculty on various electronics or networking projects
  • Equipment Design and Prototyping - We can help fabricate original electronics equipment design and prototype work for researchers. Capabilities include chematic capture, circuit analysis, board layout, routing,  prototyping double-sided printed circuit boards.
