Safety comes first at the  SuSu and Mark A. Fischer ’72 Engineering Design Center (FEDC). We will provide training on secure machine areas and on all machines that you will be required to run.

Our training is annotated and updated every semester. Failure to follow these safety rules can lead to loss of shop privileges and FEDC access. The FEDC operates on a zero-tolerance policy when it involves safety violations.

All incidents are to be reported immediately to the staff on duty. Send any information directly to

To gain access to the design center, students must  complete the Fischer Engineering Design Center Safety Powerpoint and then take the Fischer Design Center Orientation Quiz . A second series of safety training and in-person training is required to enter the fabrication shop and the artisan shop. These areas require certain dress codes and visible badges color coded for the area.
