The GIT shops are contained within the ETAS Annex. The building is divided into the following areas:
The fab shop is a fully operational machine shop with two vertical mills, two lathes, drill presses, saws, and grinders, as well as a small parts sand blaster. The primary function of this shop is to produce parts and assemblies to support research and development both on and off campus. The machines in this shop are generally not open for student or faculty use.
This multipurpose room is open daily as a woodshop. The woodworking equipment consists of a table saw, miter saw, planer, and drill press. The room may also be used for the construction of special projects or for class meetings, but it must be reserved in advance with the Shop Coordinator. Furthermore, the area may be reserved for time periods of no longer than fifteen (15) working days.
Shop staff meetings, client consultations, and student classes are commonly held in our conference room. This room will comfortably seat fifteen people and is equipped with a TV, VCR, overhead projector, and two large whiteboards.
