In response to recent University actions and in an effort to reduce health risk, Mechanical Engineering leadership has made the choice to close the Boyd Lab to projects for the duration of the University’s online learning transition. This includes for class projects, research, and club projects.
This is an every changing situation and these polices may change at any time in response to that. All lab related information will be posted here.

Starting immediately, anyone coming in to work on club projects, research projects, or non-ME department work needs to sign in on the laptops prior to working.
