Rutgers established the New Jersey Advanced Manufacturing Institute (NJAMI) to distinguish and elevate the state’s historic manufacturing profi le. At Weeks Hall, dedicated space provides unique opportunities for faculty, students, and industry partners to develop and test innovative devices in areas of information technology, renewable energy, sensing devices, and health and life sciences.
Undergraduate Concept Labs and Research Terrace
Two large undergraduate Concept Labs provide collaborative space for students to design and build projects. Open to all students in every engineering discipline, the spaces o er an ideal environment for students to work together and exchange ideas, while also providing design and build space for senior capstone design projects. The Research Terrace offers an outdoor facility for building, test driving, and/or flying projects.
Manufacturing Pilot Laboratory
The Manufacturing Pilot Laboratory provides a unique space dedicated to the assembly, testing, and modification of student project prototypes. This high-bay lab space has a second floor perimeter catwalk for viewing projects below.
Rapid Prototyping Laboratory
Advancements in rapid prototyping, commonly known as 3D printing, have greatly accelerated in recent years, offering immediate production of conceptual ideas. The state-of-the-art Rapid Prototyping Lab provides instant production and testing of designs.
The Microfabrication Lab is designed to be a critical resource for research and education in the area of information technology. Students, faculty members, and industry partners will collaborate in this space to design and produce innovative devices in the areas of information technology, renewable energy, sensing devices, and health and life sciences. This will be one of only three such facilities in the state, making it an educational and research resource with benefits for engineering students and regional industries.
