The Carleton Laboratory has a fully outfitted metalworking machine shop capable of machining parts, fittings, and testing enclosures in steel, non-ferrous metals, plexiglass, and wood. The Carleton Machine Shop’s machine shop is state of the art, either of the latest generation or recently rebuilt and modernized with digital readouts installed on core machine tools.

The machine shop is open for use by undergraduate and graduate civil engineering students performing research, supported by the lab’s own senior lab technician. All other persons may submit a Fabrication Request Form to have parts fabricated by the shop.
