14.1 Department Services

14.1.1 - Copy Services

Students may use the copy machine on the 6th floor for course support or research purposes (it is not available for personal use). Your faculty member must submit a memo to the Financial Assistant in 6195 Etcheverry requesting an account number. This account number is valid during the current semester only. Please remember that students are last in line in terms of priority for using the machine - after faculty, staff and visiting scholars.


14.1.2 - Student Mail

There is a 3-drawer file cabinet on the 6th floor of Etcheverry Hall next to the elevator on the North side. Graduate student mail is put into these drawers by staff. It is your responsibility to pick up your mail on a regular basis. The drawers are cleared out at the end of each semester and any mail in them is discarded. All mail must include the mail code 1742 after the zip code. The file cabinet remains unlocked during working hours (8 am-5 pm) otherwise they remain locked for security reasons. The hours could change depending on staff availability.


Please do not have your personal mail sent to the Department. All personal mail will be "returned to sender".


14.1.3 - Student Shop Safety Orientation

Before you can work in the machine shop, it is necessary for you to attend an orientation. This orientation is to familiarize you with various types of equipment within the machine shop. These orientations are given as group training sessions once or twice per semester by appointment. Contact the Safety Coordinator in 1168 Etcheverry to make an appointment. You are also required to take a Shop Safety Class from the Environmental Health & safety (EH&S) office prior to doing any research in any of the Mechanical Engineering Laboratories. These safety classes are usually given during the first 3 weeks of the Fall and Spring Semesters.
