  • Engineering students at the Prescott Campus have a unique opportunity to work on projects and research in labs dedicated solely to them. Students operate remote and autonomous robots in the Aerial Robotics Lab or fabricate and assemble innovative projects in the Aerospace Experimentation and Fabrication Building, better known as AXFAB. In the AXFAB labs, students conduct prototyping using 3-D technology, test physical material specimens used in aerospace platforms and heat-treat materials to prepare specimens for analysis.
  • Beyond the AXFAB labs, students also use the Wind Tunnel Lab, Robotics Lab, Propulsions Lab, Materials Testing Lab and Structures Lab.
  • In addition, students are using the Advanced Vehicle Lab to design and construct an electric land-speed-record car to run at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
  • The STEM Education Center is Prescott’s new two-story building which covers 52,000 square feet of space and contains over 20 industry-grade laboratories, replete with innovative technological equipment unique to each STEM program the university offers. In addition to the top-ranked undergraduate aeronautical and aerospace engineering programs in the country, the STEM Center's facilities support degrees in astronomy, forensic biology, space physics, wildlife science, and the new bachelor's degree in Simulation Science, Gaming and Animation.
