Laboratories and Computer Facilities

In addition to attending formal lectures, mechanical engineering students gain hands-on experience in the laboratory with measurement techniques, test procedures and equipment representative of the type encountered in industry. The laboratories include materials testing, measurements, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, robotics and microcomputers, manufacturing and CAD/CAM, instrumentation and a computer laboratory to which all students have access.
