MEAM Instructional Labs

The Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM) Design and Prototyping Laboratories provides students, and researchers with the resources they need to design, fabricate, and test their ideas. Students are given access to a wide variety of tools, machinery, and guidance to help them realize their goals. In addition to this, professors are provided the opportunity to utilize these resources to supplement their lessons with hands-on projects.

Apart from providing resources to Penn students during the school year, the labs assist with courses during Penn’s Engineering Summer Academy (ESAP). ESAP offers a unique opportunity for a selective group of high school students to experience rigorous and challenging college-level coursework. The Design and Prototyping Laboratory also offers services to professors. students, and local groups who are interested in having projects fabricated for them or to learn about the methods of fabrication.
