Labs and facilities
Construction office simulation
This lab is used for teaching and self directed learning.
A wide bed HP printer and 36" plotter allows us to use the latest construction and
design graphic software.
The lab includes ample room for plan lay
down and multiple user interface.
ll the computers are connected to the College of
Engineering, Forestry, and Natural Sciences servers and the university network.
Software in the lab includes:
- Project for Windows Scheduling
- AutoDesk AutoCAD, Revit
- Microsoft Office 2010 suite
The lab also features full AV with
projection, DVD, VHS, and on-screen computing.
Our newly remodeled collaboration suite features two 42" touchscreen monitors that allow virtual interaction with construction plans. CM students can reserve time in this space to work on group projects, practice presentations or just work on individual assignments.
CEFNS CADD lab
The college has a 33- station Computer Aided design and Drafting lab equipped to run the latest versions of Autodesk and Solidedge software.
Masonry and concrete testing and demonstration
The Department of Construction Management has a 5,000 square foot fenced compound within a five minute walk of the College’s main building. This area is used for concrete and masonry demonstration and test work.Read more
This is a unique facility for higher
education construction management programs.
This facility is partially funded by the Arizona Masonry Guild.
Fundamentally all construction rests on soil. Our soils classes are taught by our own engineering faculty and our laboratories are state-of-the-art facilities allowing us to host up to 25 students in a comfortable work environment.
Concrete and masonry laboratories
The concrete and masonry laboratories are used in conjunction with the remote masonry and concrete testing and demonstration compound.Read more
These facilities allow us to perform a
variety of design and destructive demonstrations for cement and grout. The
civil engineering department uses this facility for construction of the
Engineering destructive materials testing lab
This facility houses a variety of destructive test equipment, used in measuring structural properties of construction materials.
Machine and welding shop
CEFNS Engineering and Professional Programs has a machine shop and welding shop in a new facility about a five minute walk from the main engineering complex, in building 98C.
Trade Skills Laboratory
As part of our Construct for Practice (C4P) Integrated laboratory, students have the opportunity to experience construction hands on.
CEFNS Engineering and Professional Programs offers a variety of computing access methods. The engineering complex features more 300 PC and Unix machines. In an effort to improve, streamline operations and cut costs, we are in the process of moving our computing use to thin client servers with terminals.Read more
The engineering complex is covered by wi-fi,
and building 69 has 24 hour, seven-day per week controlled access lab
facilities available to undergraduate students in engineering and professional
The university offers unparalleled opportunities for self directed online education in project management software and web commerce design. ITS licenses the latest software for students and faculty use including use on personal computers.
