The Student Electronics Lab is open to all department students, faculty and staff. The lab exists to support the department by providing a unique area for experimentation and education in electronics.
The lab is equipped with five stations for prototyping and experimentation. The following equipment is also available for use:
- Spectrum analyzers
- Function generators
- Power supplies
