This facility provides access to a range of electronic test and fabrication equipment with specialist staff on-hand to provide advice on a variety of instrumentation issues.

The Instrumentation Workshop (Building 45, Room 103) provides EAIT staff and students the opportunity to work alongside specialist instrumentation engineers who develop data acquisition (DAQ) and control systems for a variety of applications. The facility has a range of work stations which cater for electronic design, test and assembly in addition to dedicated surface-mount rework stations with stereo microscopes and hot air rework tools.The facility also houses a modern instrument calibration service which can verify a wide range of sensors using NATA-calibrated reference sources. Tutorials and equipment for some undergraduate courses, such as MECH3250 and METR2800, are administered by the Instrumentation Workshop whilst some online tutorials are available via the Resources page. Bookings for these can be made using the EAIT Student Event Booking System. Additionally, a range of instrumentation equipment and tools can be loaned from the workshop using the online Equipment Loan System once the relevant Risk Assessments and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) have been read.
