The laboratories form an integral part of the curriculum, providing an environment where students reinforce their understanding of the fundamental principles of Mechanical Engineering and apply that knowledge in experimental analysis and problem-solving. Facilities range from instructional laboratories to general purpose labs for faculty and undergraduate student research. All are used in the undergraduate program. Many are also used for research and student projects.
Along with engineering design, laboratories are critical in developing the work-oriented skills that are expected of a mechanical engineering graduate today. A partial list of laboratory facilities maintained by the Mechanical Engineering Program is shown below.
