Undergraduate Instructional Labs

Our undergraduate students do hands-on, interdisciplinary work. From designing and building electric circuits to dissecting tissues, from examining the mechanical properties of bone to purifying solutions by dialysis, our students have access to laboratory facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and opportunities. Our labs center around a discovery-based approach to learning where students learn to define their own experiments as well as reevaluate their techniques and goals in order to answer the questions that they pose.

The Stephenson Foundation Undergraduate Laboratory

The Stephenson Foundation Undergraduate Laboratory is the primary teaching lab for the Department of Bioengineering. It is located in Room 225 Skirkanich Hall.

Making use of an innovative "discovery-based" approach to learning, students learn to define their own experiments as well as to re-evaluate their techniques and goals in order to answer the questions that they formulate themselves.

Bioengineering labs involve such variety as the designing and building of electrical circuits, dissections, mechanics and chemistry. Learn more...
