What We Do
Skilled machinists work with campus researchers and external clients to design and fabricate specialized equipment that is not available on the market. MasterCam technology allows shop staff to use CAD programs that run computer-operated mills and lathes to produce completed parts. Skilled welders use solidworks technology and helium leak detectors to provide vacuum welding as well as custom fabricated parts.
Machining involves the removal of material to create a specific design. Additive manufacturing, like 3D printing, combines material to form a product.

The UC San Diego community holds great respect for the land and the original people of the area where our campus is located. The university is built on the un-ceded territory of the Kumeyaay Nation. Today, the Kumeyaay people continue to maintain their political sovereignty and cultural traditions as vital members of the San Diego community. We acknowledge their tremendous contributions to our region and thank them for their stewardship.
