Test & Engineering Center

The Test and Engineering Center (TEC) is Exponent’s nucleus for sophisticated and complex test programs.  Located in Phoenix, Arizona, our 147-acre test facility includes both indoor and outdoor facilities for large-scale testing and experiments. The TEC comprises a combination of specialized test and prototyping equipment with reconfigurable test areas and instrumentation.  Outdoors the TEC maintains a vehicle proving ground and full-scale crash facility; indoors nearly 27,000 square feet of high-bay space is used in the evaluation of everything from sports equipment to large-format electric vehicle batteries.  In addition to pure test and evaluation, the TEC facilities support part and product prototyping with extensive ‘direct from digital’ mechanical and electrical fabrication tools complemented by dedicated design and assembly areas. As projects have required, the facility has been used to support short turn/small lot production.

The test facilities at the TEC include:
