The facility includes machine tools, welding, refrigeration, electrical repair areas as well a fabrication area dedicated to plexiglass and carpentry projects. We have a stock of fasteners, fittings, and other materials that can cover your needs without having to go off campus. Think of us as your first stop when you have technical questions or just need to bounce ideas around concerning lab or field research needs.

All work performed by the EEMB Shop must be requested through the Shop Work Request system. Questions and comments can be directed to the shop by email or phone, but once any questions are answered and concerns addressed, a formal work request must still be placed.
