On-Campus State-of-the-Art Facilities

To support our growing number of STEM students, GCU has opened the doors to an 84,105 square-foot STEM classroom building and a 162,653 square-foot engineering building, featuring state-of-the-art equipment and shops. We are proud to offer more than 21 labs used for scheduled classes and nine additional labs used by students outside of their scheduled classes to experience hands-on learning using advanced technologies and tools to serve a real purpose in the world. You can access these labs from day one as a freshman, giving you an opportunity to bring your ideas to life. Here are just a few of our dynamic workspaces:


Lopes Lab

Collaborate with others and create concept models in this on-campus makerspace, featuring 3D printers, a small CNC router and a laser cutter/engraver.

Dynamics Lab

Apply physics concepts to complex real-world situations by using static boards, pulley systems and other tools.

Transport Phenomena Lab

Learn about utilizing a piping system, including fluid flow, heat transfer and mass transfer, in this lab.

Computer-Aided Engineering Lab
