The Rutgers IEEE Lab

The Rutgers IEEE Lab is a hub for innovation and passion for technology. With state-of-the-art equipment, a brand new layout designed to foster collaboration, and easy access to tools and parts, the lab is where our divisions meet to work on their projects.

3D Printing Station

Many of our projects require us to make custom parts on site. With our two 3D printers, the Creality CR-10 (300mm x 300mm x 400mm) and the Prusa i3 MK3S, we can do just that. The printers are connected to our dedicated CAD Workstation and can also print from a microSD card. Parts we've printed include a VEXU Mobile Goal Gripper, a Quadcopter Camera Gimbal, and a Micromouse Robot Chassis. We can also print in color.

Soldering Station

Sometimes our projects require a little MacGyvering by way of splicing together cables, soldering PCBs, and terminating cables into your favorite headers. We can do all that with our dedicated soldering station, which includes two soldering irons, an air filtration system, a heat gun, and yards of colored wire. This station makes it possible to develop custom electrical solutions.

We need a place to fabricate and assemble the parts our divisions use for their projects. The workshop holds tools like our circular saw, drills, and bandsaw. Without the workshop, robots would never get built, and drones would never fly.
