What can the Protortyping Lab do for you

Our goal is to provide prototyping/engineering services to UCSD researchers. We can help with individual projects, but also be involved in more extensive institutional support. We are equally a dedicated engineering service in electrical and mechanical systems (i.e. we can design, prototype, program and build/machine systems for you) and a shared project space to work with you directly.


We are here to help you build things. If you need to create embedded electronics, mechanical devices, robotic contraptions, real-time/networking software, 3D printed structures, or for general systems engineering support; look no further, we are here for you.

Our expertise spans a wide range of technologies and application domains, from bio-medical and embedded systems to robotics, mechatronics and wireless systems. A particular strength is our ability to fully integrate the electronics, mechanical elements and software of a system in a single design flow, and help build entire system prototypes from the ground up.

The Prototyping Lab also allows students to rent out lab space by getting a lab pass. This includes organizations or individual students who want to work on projects
