College of Engineering Enhanced Visit

College of Engineering Enhanced Visit is a great opportunity to learn more and view the Engineering facilities. See our Advanced Structures and Composite Center (ASCC), which is home to our Alfond W2 Ocean Engineering Lab and the world’s largest 3D Printer.

The ASCC is a secure facility and because of this there are strict security protocols to follow. Registration is required 1 week prior to the tour date.

Please wear close-toed footwear. Participants with open-toed footwear, such as sandals, will not be able to enter some of the laboratories.
