Shop Access

The machine shop is only accessible to students who have building access by way of enrollment in a hybrid class such as ME 195b, ME 180, ME 154, or some sections of ME 299/295a/295b. Additionally, access is only allowed for students who have completed ME 41 Shop Safety or an equivalent course. (Occasionally, students who have gained machine shop experience outside of a course will be approved. If you think that applies to you, email Roger Jue at Roger.Jue@sjsu.edu. He will need to evaluate your skills.)  

In previous years, we gave out door codes to people who had completed ME 41 and the Canvas safety course. Because fewer people are in the building in case of emergency and because of additional oversight needed due to Covid 19, door codes will not be issued at this point, so you will need to come during open hours. The names of students approved to use the shop will be given to the shop supervisor. Check in with him when you enter the machine shop.

There is a two-step process for getting approval to use the machine shop. 

1) Fill out this form to gain shop access. You will be enrolled in a Canvas safety course that you will need to complete before using the shop.

2) After you have been approved and passed the Canvas safety course, you can sign up for an appointment to use the shop by going here. An appointment is important because only five students (plus the shop assistant) can be in the shop at one time, and we don't want people coming to campus if the shop is going to be full. The time slots are one hour in length. If you need to be in the shop for longer than an hour, you can sign up for several slots back-to-back. Delete your appointment from your calendar if you need to cancel.
