The Studio Laboratory Environment eliminates the need to separate classroom lecture from the laboratory experience.
The ECE Department has a long and distinguished tradition of emphasizing hands-on and minds-on learning through rigorous laboratory experiences designed to help students to discover and understand the laws, principles, and concepts of engineering, mathematics, and science. The ECE Department has 9 different instructional laboratories. Below is additional information on some of these laboratories.
The Model-Based System Design Laboratory helps better prepare engineering students to develop complex systems. It re-engineers the traditional development process from one which is paper-based to one that utilizes an executable model that is the repository for all information about the concept, design and implementation of a product.
The Test & Product Engineering Laboratory allows Rose-Hulman to offer courses that cover analog and mixed signal test and product engineering. These courses make available opportunities for students to learn the special methods required for testing analog and mixed signal integrated circuits at the production level, where minimizing test time is critical.
The Energy Lab has modern equipment and instrumentation in a state-of-the-art studio laboratory configuration, with the school's computing network, so that students can use their laptop computers to interact with material presented in an interactive learning environment.
