CEI Courtyard, University of Windsor

Soldering is a joining method used for a wide range of parts, including delicate electronic components. Solder is a metal alloy designed to melt at very low temperatures, and various methods of soldering can be used to join parts together. Although most soldering is automated today, manual soldering is an important skill for assembly technicians, researchers, students, and engineers. This solder training workshop class addresses the knowledge and techniques required to produce high-quality manually soldered joints. Eric Pillon and Jake Blythe will provide an overview of basic manual soldering equipment and proper safety precautions for soldering. Different soldering alloys, including lead-free solders and also the proper soldering techniques for joining PCB components will be discussed in this event. Registration link:  


Room 2205, CEI, University of Windsor

The University of Windsor has recently procured several machines capable of fabricating dual layer PCBs complete with through-hole plating, solder mask, silk screen and solder paste deposition. The newly constructed PCB Fabrication lab s a valuable asset for engineering student clubs, capstone students, researchers and electrical hobbyists. This lab is located in CEI2205 and is available to all undergraduate engineering students free of charge. The purpose of this event is to introduce and familiarize all attendees with the PCB fabrication equipment to advance their circuit design and fabrication skillset. Drop by CEI2205 any time between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm to learn about this exciting new lab equipment. Please register through the link below before attending.



3D modeling is an extremely useful technical skill for engineers from all disciplines. This tutorial focuses on employing Autodesk Fusion 360 to design 3D enclosures which can be printed in the PCB fabrication lab in CEI2205. Fusion 360 is a cloud-based platform that is free for all students. It integrates seamlessly with Eagle PCB design software.
