Before you check out equipment for your project, you will need to complete, with the help of your advisor, an Independent Project Resource Request form (below). This form must be signed by your advisor. Once your project is approved, you will be assigned a tech contact to whom you will email your specific requests as outlined above.Independent Project Resource Request Form
In general, your advisor will be providing you with the equipment and space required for your project work. If needed, you may request use of instructional equipment. After consultation with your advisor, you will submit an SNS Independent Project Resource Request form (below), and have it signed by your project advisor. Once approved, you can request the equipment when you need it, following the steps outlined above.Independent Project Resource Request Form
Students must be trained on equipment in class prior to checking it out. The one exception to the in-class training rule will be for students with approved capstone or graduate projects, whose advisor may provide training before the equipment is checked out.
In the event of an equipment conflict, we will prioritize requests by type, according to the priority below.
