W.M. Keck Composites Laboratory

The Keck Composites Lab facilitates a place for a composites laboratory class to take place, and a place where students can come and make composite components for their student and research projects. The lab allows students to learn many fundamental hands-on skills relating to creating their own molds, laying up composite parts, and post-cure processing (machining, drilling, and cutting). Students can do wet and prepreg layups with the use of a vacuum pump, oven and/or autoclave.
