Maintenance and repair to the equipment in the Rawl Engineering Practice Facility machine shop is handled by the Engineering Practice Coordinator (EPC). The EPC performs daily walk- throughs of the shop to identify broken or damaged equipment. Critical equipment is repaired immediately. Other equipment is repaired as the budget allows.
The EPC provides an annual request to the Dean’s Office for maintenance and purchase of new equipment. The annual request includes an assessment of student needs for in-house design and manufacturing of team projects.
