Troxler Design Center

The Troxler Design Center is named in recognition of William F. Troxler, and is dedicated to the Department's Senior Design courses. Originally located in Daniels Hall, the center moved in the Fall of 2005 to a larger facility in Engineering Building II. This new location provided expanded workspace, new equipment, and 24-hour availability for students working on their design projects.

At ~2,000 sq. ft., the Troxler Design Center is the ECE Department's largest lab, and contains workspace and storage space as well as multiple meeting areas for group meetings or presentations. Large, high-quality workbenches make up the 20 stations for project teams, which also include a dedicated computer for each team. Cutting-edge test equipment and instruments are provided throughout the lab, thanks in large part to the generous donations of William F. Troxler and the Troxler family. The lab also provides solder stations, lockers and multiple cabinets for team storage, and a networked printer.

Course Information

The Troxler Design Center is primarily used for the Senior Design capstone course. In this course, students work in teams, utilizing the skills and knowledge they have acquired during their undergraduate studies to design and implement a product concept. Utilizing resources from company and individual sponsors as well as the equipment and resources of the Troxler Design Center, students must design, test, and create their product prototype. At the end of the semester, the students present their projects to the public at ECE Design Day.
