The King Engineering and Technology Center houses faculty office space, classrooms, labs, and workspace for engineering courses and is the primary building for computer and electrical engineering.
A unique feature to this building are the many prints depicting aircraft and other engineering marvels — each the second of only 1,000 prints made. The first of these prints issued now hangs on the walls of the Pentagon, while the third hangs in the White House.
A few of the labs in the King Center include:
- Communications Systems Lab (Room 117): A lab space where students can study radio communication, transmission and reception, amplitude modulation, and frequency modulation.
- Power Lab (Room 121): A laboratory for electrical, aerospace, computer, and mechanical engineering students contains a wide range of instruments, parts and prototyping equipment principally used for prototyping and testing electronic circuits and learning power instruments operation.
- Control Systems Lab (Room 122): In the Control Systems Laboratory students apply theoretical concepts introduced in class to relevant practical examples such as DC motor speed and position control.
- Microprocessor Systems Lab (Room 122): In the Microprocessor Systems Laboratory, electrical, computer and software engineers learn the fundamentals of microprocessor integration and microprogramming including analog and digital input/output to devices ranging from stepper motors to liquid crystal displays.
- Linear Circuits and Electronics Devices Lab (Room 130): Introductory electric circuits’ laboratories for aerospace engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering students are taught in the Linear Circuits and Electronic Devices laboratory.
- The L Lab: An open computer lab for students to work on school work and projects. It features engineering software such as MATLAB.
- Senior Design Lab: With funding for senior capstone projects coming from various sources, computer and electrical engineering majors bring their equipment and supplies to this space to work on the design, building, and testing of their senior engineering capstone projects.
