Our STEM Labs

Faculty laboratory facilities in the STEM fields with their equipment may be accessible for use by companies, as part of a collaborative project over a wide range of product R&D applications, or in order for company personnel to learn the proper use of such facilities. The Sensor CAT can serve as a portal to Stony Brook University for companies who may be interested in learning what facilities may be available and relevant to their interests. An authorized use of Sensor CAT co-funding to a project may be purchase of equipment for use in the project.
