Guidelines for Faculty Using Electrical Storeroom and Labs

  1. The School’s philosophy is that all of our equipment is shared among programs and faculty. This means that common equipment kept in the storeroom needs to be signed out of the storeroom (Burke 141) and accounted for. Ideally, equipment and will be signed out and returned through our electrical technician, John McCutcheon, or one of his work study students.
  2. The hours that the storeroom service window will be open are posted at the start of each semester. Service will be available between two and four hours each business day.

Advanced Manufacturing and Innovation Center Now Open

The open stairway in the atrium of Penn State Behrend’s new Advanced Manufacturing and Innovation Center could have been designed to offer a sweeping view of Lake Erie. Instead, the stairs echo the intent of the $16.5 million, 60,000-square-foot building, which advances the college’s “open lab” model of learning: They are positioned to encourage daily interactions between students and faculty experts in the School of Engineering and business and industry partners who want to collaborate on research and manufacturing projects.
