Faculty Workshop Group
Faculty of EAIT


The Supervised Access Workshop offers a range of tools and machinery available for use by staff and Post Graduate Students within the faculty.

To provide staff and post graduate students with the facility to undertake some minor mechanical tasks themselves, the Supervised Access Workshop (SAW), located in Building 50, Room S107C, offers a range of workshop equipment including hand & power tools, pedestal drills & grinders, guillotine, sheet & angle benders and a selection of presses. Advice is on hand from the technical staff who work in the Development Workshop, of which the SAW is a part.

Additionally, a range of 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.
