BECC Machine Shop

Build Your Next Project Here

Cutting edge manufacturing resources are at your fingertips right here on the Bradley University campus. The Caterpillar College of Engineering andTechnology Machine Shop features a modern facility with dozens of state-of-the-art machines and equipment.

Located in the basement of BECC, the Machine Shop’s services are available to all students, faculty and staff at Bradley. We assist with designing and producing the parts you need to tackle any project, as scheduling allows.

Student organizations continue to use the shop for a variety of needs, including to build a Formula One-style racecar.

The Machine Shop is open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Extended hours are available by appointment only and reserved solely to fully trained individuals with an approved shop monitor. These reservations must be approved by the Shop Supervisor in advance.

Email Jeremy Brockhouse or Jeff Cecil to access the machine shop. They will provide you with links to the required training.
