Students walking out of Goodwin Hall with blue sky above

DREAMS Lab researchers have access to almost every modality of Additive Manufacturing process. The DREAMS Lab is located in Goodwin Hall (Rooms 406, 410 & 424) and in a recent expansion at Commerce St., which provides high-bay space for large-scale projects. The DREAMS Lab also facilitates the new Industry 4.0 lab opening in Kelly Hall in Spring 2021.
