Inter-departmental Loans

All ECEn equipment check-outs to other department(s) will be limited to a duration of one semester free of charge, after which a rental fee of 3% of the value of the equipment will be charged each month. Equipment requested by other departments will only be checked out to faculty within those departments (e.g., the faculty leader of a Capstone project). This will help ensure that equipment is not lost as groups change and seniors graduate.

Our intent is not to hinder your activities, but rather to encourage those who need equipment to look first within their own department, then to us for short term checkout only. The purpose of the rental fee is to cover the cost of overhead, replacement and repairs that inevitably arise as equipment is used.
