The fee for shop work is currently set at $35/hour.
When writing grant proposals, researchers are encouraged to request sufficient funds to cover the costs of any anticipated electronics shop time. Any such work will then be charged to the grant. For College of Arts, Sciences and Education faculty without grant support, hourly shop charges will be entered in a ledger for bookkeeping and reporting purposes. The shop welcomes jobs from outside the College of Arts, Sciences and Education. Non-CASE jobs will be charged the set shop fee, either from a C&G account or the requester's department E&G account.
When discussing a possible job for the shop, our electronical engineer will make a rough initial estimate of how much time the job is expected to require and of the materials needed. If the requester gives the go-ahead, the job will be entered in the shop's queue. If needed, the estimate will be adjusted as the job progresses or is finished. When applicable, a requisition or Inter-Departmental Transfer Form needs to be completed and processed. A partially filled-out form including the shop account number is linked here. We also request that users fill out the Electronics Shop Job Request Form.
