Equipment List

Last updated: 11/21/2016
Below is a list of equipment (with links to data sheets where available) for equipment that can be borrowed by TECH students for the purpose of Senior Projects on a first come, first serve basis.

I know that there are a number of GREAT Senior Projects that these parts can be used for, but please do NOT ask me to provide you with a project idea. Come up with your own idea and I will be glad to lend you equipment to help implement YOUR idea.

Since this equipment is owned by me and NOT the Technology Department you will be expected to return it in working order. If it is not in working order upon return you will be asked to replace the broken item(s).
