What we’re responsible for:

  • Building the frame, body, and any moving parts
  • Designing manipulators to help carry out tasks as efficiently as possible

What we use:

  • SolidWorks for the designing process
  • Machinery in the SDELC to bring designs to life

This division is great for anyone with an interest in creative problem solving, fabrication, or design.
