The BeAM Design Center @ Rosenau is a unique resource for design and fabrication assistance located in Rosenau Hall at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our mission is to facilitate and complement research of all types by providing engineering consultation, design, fabrication, assembly, and select repair services in a wide range of disciplines. Historically our facility was an instrumentation shop within the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering. Now, the Design Center has evolved to become a key element in BeAM’s support of research at UNC.
