Fully-Equipped Labs and Studios

Have the chance to work in the Machinery and Power Systems Laboratory, the Manufacturing Metrology Laboratory, the Acoustics Laboratory, Audio and Architecture Studios, or even our Robotics Laboratory! The average class in CETA is 24 students, though many classes run with far fewer students. Those classes are held in these classrooms, labs and studios equipped with digital and overhead projectors, television equipment regularly maintained by Media Technology Services, as well as computers. We regularly update our teaching labs and studios so you can learn on the latest technology with new software and equipment supported by an in-house staff of computer and technology specialists. In addition, through CETA's Open Lab Program, you have the ability to use the labs and studios outside of regularly scheduled hours, and even work as lab and studio monitors in the program.

Discover Our Makerspace

Students working in Makerspace

The makerspace is equipped with tools, 3D printers, scanners, CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machines, and soon-to-be installed lockers for CETA students to create and store their prototypes. There is a designated area for you to use power tools that will require safety goggles, whereas the rest of the room will be an open collaboration area to allow students to work with light tools and rolling whiteboards. Visit themakerspace in United Technologies 320 to begin your next project!
