Well-equipped research laboratories and facilities that specialize in different areas that uncover new revelations that have real-world applications.
The MicroDevice Laboratory (MDL) supports research programs aimed at applying traditional Mechanical Engineering approaches to emerging areas such as NEMS/MEMS and nanotechnology.
Initial funding for the MicroDevices Laboratory was generously provided by the U.S. Army Armaments Research Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) at Picatinny Arsenal. Additional equipment grants have been obtained from the National Science Foundation (Major Research Instrumentation Program) and the Office of Naval Research Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP).
Researchers within the department can also utilize the multiuser facilities that are available at Stevens, including the Laboratory for Multiscale Imaging (LMSI).
Alfred W. Fielding Computer Aided Design Laboratory
The Alfred W. Fielding (AWF) Computer-Aided Design Laboratory serves undergraduate and graduate students and for both in-class and out-of-class instruction.
The AWF Laboratory also serves as the focus of departmental computer support. The laboratory's facilities are used in several classes including ME 345 (Modeling and Simulation) and ME 554 (Introduction to Computer Aided Design). All students requiring access may use the computers and software as well as file-server storage space in this laboratory.
About the Fielding Lab
The Alfred W. Fielding '39 Computer Aided Design Laboratory was made possible by a generous grant from the Sealed Air Corporation in honor of alumni Alfred W. Fielding, a co-inventor of Bubble Wrap.
