Equipment & Facilities

The Washkewicz College of Engineering has established three cost centers with services and equipment available to CSU personnel for teaching and research. The facilities are also available to external entities, such as companies, organizations and institutions.

The following describes the cost of using these facilities:

 

     1. Machine Shop

The College has a fully-equipped machine shop operated by a full-time machinist. The cost of using this facility is $45.20 per hour of work by the machinist. This excludes any materials needed for the project. This price is applied to all users, regardless of the funding source, to comply with federal guidelines.

If an external entity uses the facility, there is an indirect cost added to the total direct cost. The indirect cost rate is 48.5% of the total direct cost (this is the federally-approved rate for CSU).
