Active Learning Labs

Students celebrate their project's success in the Active Learning Labs' "truss crush" competiton.


Our mission is to work with faculty to support the SEAS academic plan and to bolster educational excellence throughout all undergraduate engineering activities.

The SEAS academic plan emphasizes the need for hands-on engineering experiences and student design projects. The Active Learning Laboratories are expected to take the lead and excel in supporting these student experiences. Our support team is composed of full-time engineer/scientist staff members across many disciplines

The Active Learning Labs at SEAS and the related machine shops in the Physics Department support the educational mission of the school by supporting students with access to and training on state-of-the-art instrumentation and advanced fabrication tools.

Historically, the Active Learning Labs have been called the Instructional Laboratories as well as the SEAS Teaching Labs.
