The VEL is an experimental computer visualization facility located within the College of Engineering at Penn State University, USA. It is under the auspices of the Artist-in-Residence in Engineering program. The philosophy of the lab is interdisciplinary, serving students and faculty from all sectors of the university. Typical classes contain a mix of engineering, science and art students who share their personal skills with each other in an informal atmosphere. Instruction on the computers is offered by advanced students with master classes in applications or lectures on aesthetics, philosophy and case studies.
