Engineering Laboratories

Engineering programs are supported by state-of-the-art laboratories open to all engineering students. These laboratories and workshops are managed by qualified and dedicated staff.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers various laboratory courses to cover the main topics in the fields of concrete and pavement design, environmental engineering, mechanics of materials, soil mechanics, hydraulics, field surveying, geophysical and engineering graphics.

The lab equipment is continuously upgraded and updated to ensure that our students are exposed to the most recent and advanced systems. The department also secures highly accurate and professional testing facilities such as spectrophotometry, strain gauging, triaxial testing, open and closed channel flow measurements, and total station application. Most of the lab facilities are connected to data acquisition systems. In addition, field equipment are available for in-situ testing, such as soil investigation, groundwater and surface water testing, and concrete quality control.
Professional commercial testing as well as community services are also performed on a regular basis in the above areas.

The Department of Electrical, Computer and Communication Engineering has several laboratories, which support teaching in the areas of communication systems, electronic circuit design, including microprocessors and programmable logic controllers, instrumentation, electric machines, power electronics, control systems, and digital signal processing. The laboratories are also used by students for executing their engineering project designs. The equipment is regularly updated to ensure that students are exposed to the best possible laboratory experience.
State-of-the-art laboratory equipments are being used in the Department of Mechanical Engineering for training purposes. The list includes a large wind tunnel for aerodynamics testing, energy testing facilities (solar systems, combustion, etc.), turbomachinery testing systems (pumps, fans, Pelton wheel, turbines, etc.), air-conditioning testing units (heating, cooling, refrigeration, etc.), mechatronics and instrumentation equipment, mechanical vibration benches, and mechanical components and systems. A full workshop made of a set of machine-tools, including a CNC machine, is used for student training and regular machining needs. The laboratories are constantly maintained and updated to integrate new concepts, and to keep up with advancements in different mechanical engineering fields.
