Operations Management

Operations Management is responsible for small project problem solving, safety awareness and the preservation and revitalization of existing buildings, Engineering East and West halls, IEM and BioTech Eight.

All room access key requests must be made by filling out one of the forms below:

College of Engineering Key Request Form
College of Engineering MASTER Key Request Form (Master or Sub-master Only)

A cash-only deposit of $10 per key must be paid before keys are issued. Deposits must be made to the office of the College of Engineering Operations Manager, who will also maintain records of approved Key Request Forms.

You will be emailed when your key is available to you with a request to schedule an appointment time for key pickup.

College of Engineering Faculty are responsible for their students’ key(s). Only under special circumstances will undergraduates have keys to laboratories, but they will not be issued building keys.

Lost keys will incur a $35.00 fine for re-keying of the lock(s) and new key(s). Loss of a Master Key will include the cost of an entire building to be re-keyed.

The deposit will be refunded to the individual after a key is returned to the office of the College of Engineering Operations Manager.

Email to schedule an appointment to return a key.

Electronic swipe access must be requested by the Faculty Supervisor/PI by filling out the Electronic Swipe Access Request Form.

Please note that it may take up to 48 hours for swipe access to be granted. Certain labs or rooms will require proof of safety training for access. Direct all room access questions to the Operations Manager.
