Carnegie Laboratory of Engineering
The Carnegie Laboratory has embodied the state-of-the-art in manufacturing since 1902, and is home to:
- the PROOF Lab, equipped with customized fabrication facilities capable of rapid, state-of-the-art 3D printing, laser cutting, machining and composites manufacturing, and
- the MicroDevice Lab, a multi-user facility where leading-edge nanotechnology research is performed.
The building was funded by none other than the captain of the iron and steel industry – Andrew Carnegie – and designed by architect William S. Ackerman of the Stevens Class of 1891.
Carnegie, a Stevens trustee, continued to provide funds for the Carnegie Laboratory even after it was built. He gave $100,000 for endowment of the building’s maintenance at the formal opening of the laboratory, and later, an additional $150,000 endowment after the death of his close friend, Dr. Henry Morton, the first Stevens president.
