CeFPaC Experience: 

The state-of-the-art CeFPaC Laboratory is home to groundbreaking research in the field of flow physics and control. My peers are extremely bright, and always happy to help. The attention to detail when designing experiments is top notch, and everyone is driven to reach for their full potential as experimentalists. At CeFPac, you are expected to take charge of your experiment, and oversee each stage from start to finish, from experimental design, component design, manufacturing, assembly, diagnostics, experimentation, and results. Not only does this prepare you as a knowledgeable experimentalist in the field, but as a leader who can approach an unfamiliar task and accomplish all aspects of it with confidence and enthusiasm. In my experience, the adaptability and technical knowledge among the CeFPaC team is unmatched anywhere else.
