    The workshop provides an in-house design and fabrication service for the Departments of Biochemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Physics. Research projects will often require bespoke devices to be built. The workshop technicians work with staff and students to create 3D design drawings for approval and then to use a wide range of CNC machine tools to turn their abstract ideas into fully functioning prototypes.
