The Bernard M. Gordon Learning Factory is a state-of-the-art facility that supports the capstone design program in the College of Engineering. Expanded in 2006, the 6,500 sq. ft. facility sees continuous usage throughout the year by more than 1000 students that take courses ranging from Introduction to Engineering Design (freshmen) to Capstone Design (senior) and anything in between that requires access to hands-on manufacturing facilities and space.
Hours of operation are 8am-10pm Monday-Friday in the Fall & Spring semesters. We are also open from 1-6pm on Sundays during the last 4 weeks of each semester. In the summer, we are only open from 9am-4:30pm Monday-Friday.
The Learning Factory is located on the Penn State University Park West Campus and is part of the Engineering Services Building (ENG) as indicated in the figure. For detailed and interactive maps of the University Park campus, visit: http://www.campusmaps.psu.edu/.
